Corporations in conflict areas have complex choices to make with regional consequences and global implications. For companies operating in Russia today, the risks and dilemmas of staying or leaving challenge the company’s values, commercial opportunities, and bottom line. It also has an impact on the people who rely on company’s goods and services. This discussion examines the big questions corporates have been considering since Russia invaded Ukraine in February last year.

Key questions to consider:

  • What is the extent of the Western business exit from Russia in the past year?
  • What’s at stake for corporations who continue to operate in Russia? What are the arguments to stay?
  • What’s at stake for those who leave Russia? What are the arguments to go?
  • What are the precedents being set by company decisions to stay or go – and with what implications for the international community and global economy?
