International companies that continue doing business in Russia

Share this...

Hundreds of international companies have announced their full or partial withdrawal from the Russian market since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began. At the same time, businesses continue to operate in the Russian market, making a profit and paying taxes that fund, among other things, the war in Ukraine.

On a daily basis, a group of Yale University researchers tracks the dynamics of the firms’ exodus from Russia. According to their report, the following companies have not stopped working in Russia as of April 28, 2022:
