In March 2022, Ukrainian statistics reported that 8% of Ukrainians refused to use the language of the aggressor country. This number is increasing every month. But the rejection of all Russian continued beyond the borders of Ukraine.
On 26 August, it was reported that the presidents of Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan had held a meeting where they had refused to use the language of the aggressor country.
Each participant in the meeting communicated in his language: Ilham Aliev in Azerbaijani, Qasym Toqayev in Kazakh. The heads of state ruled out any possibility of speaking Russian words.
No less interesting situation has developed around the world’s popular game World of Tanks. Wargaming’s developer abandoned the game in the aggressor countries of Russia and Belarus. Now in these countries, there will be no popular title, the game will be responsible, and the new developer — is Lesta Games. Wargaming separated Russian players from European players.
The Austrians also refused to cooperate with the Russian machine-building plant Gaz. The Russian cars were supposed to get Wolksvagen engines in central Europe. However, Austria stopped relations with Russia within the framework of European sanctions.
Many countries do not want to issue Russian citizens even tourist visas. Currently, there is active legal preparation for implementing these plans in several countries.
