The following is an Open Letter of the Ambassador of Ukraine in Finland Olga Dibrova to Nokian Tyres calling to stop all business ties with the Russian Federation: open-letter-to-nokian-tyres.pdf


Dear Sir/Madam!


The Russian Armed Forces keep committing war crimes in Ukraine, including bombing kindergartens, schools, hospitals, water reservoirs and residential buildings.


The Russian troops do not allow the civilians to leave the combat areas exposing peaceful people as a human shield.


Several Ukrainian towns, including Volnovakha in Donetsk region after the inhumane indiscriminate shelling and bombing by the Russian Armed Forces are almost obliterated as populated locality.


Due to the constant inhumane shelling and bombing of the residential buildings in the Ukrainian cities by the Russian Armed Forces, ~10 mln people have fled their homes in Ukraine: ~6.5 mln people have been displaced inside Ukraine, and ~3.4 mln left the country.


According to the UNHCR about 12,5 million people currently reside in the regions of Ukraine, that are directly affected by the war. The latter causes the number of those who leave their homes, growing.


117 children were killed by Russian troops.


Russian Armed Forces regularly neither allow humanitarian cargos to reach hundreds of thousand civilians in the besieged Ukrainian cities, nor to leave such cities using humanitarian corridors.


Due to such cruel actions of the Russian Armed Forces dozens of Ukrainian cities appeared on the verge of humanitarian catastrophe while hundreds of thousand malnourished civilians hiding in the basements of half ruined buildings do not have access even to basic facilities like electricity, water supply and medical aid.


On March 16, 2022, the United Nations International Court of Justice delivered its Order, which had binding effect, prescribing the Russian Federation to suspend immediately the military operations that it commenced on 24 February 2022 in the territory of Ukraine.


But the Russian War criminals ignored the Order of the Court and continued their aggression.


Today the whole free and democratic world stands with Ukraine that is facing treacherous Russian aggression. And the Government of Finland officially supports Ukraine.


In the beginning of March 2022, 141 states of the world condemned Russia and supported Ukraine at the United Nations General Assembly. Only 4 countries backed the state-aggressor: North Korea, Syria, Belarus and Eritrea.


Now it is time to make the choice.


Thus, I urge Nokian Tyres company to stop all business ties with the Russian Federation.


Otherwise, the blood of those killed by Russians in Ukraine and the tears of those suffering due to the Russian crimes in Ukraine will be on your hands.


Olga DIBROVA,

Ambassador of Ukraine to Finland
