Our aim is NOT to cause harm to the medical care of Russian patients. But we have the task ahead of us to end the REGIME of crimes against humanity. So all the ways to reduce their profits, economical development, access to technology should be applied NOW.
The sanctions will reduce casualties and bring civil society closer together against authoritarian governments. After the end of the war, the benefits of civilization in Russia and Belarus will cease to be equal to the loss of life. Our colleagues will no longer be faced with the choice of being a hostage of the regime or an emigrant.
Only by imposing real sanctions, we can limit the West's funding of Russia's scientific expenditures, some of which are redistributed to biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons.
Only in this way will we be able to deprive the governments of the Russian Federation and Belarus of the prestige of those who provide citizens with access to the benefits of civilization and doing business.
Only with these steps, we will be able to provoke consequences that will be felt not in years and decades but will stop the war now.
