On Friday 29 April 2022, the Association of Ukrainians in France will hold a rally outside the office of ENGIE, Russia's Gazprom leading partner in the French market, at La Défense in Paris.
The following statement is from DTEK.
ENGIE currently has five long-term contracts with Gazprom for the supply of Russian gas to France. The primary demand of the Association of Ukrainians in France is that ENGIE immediately terminates these contracts, to stop buying Russian gas, and therefore to stop financing the Russian war machine that is killing Ukrainians and seeking to destroy the country.
Despite the full-scale Russian aggression in Ukraine, which has been going on for more than two months, ENGIE has still not yet announced any intent to terminate existing contracts and therefore it continues to finance the aggressor and its terrorism in Ukraine. This is no longer acceptable.
In early April 2022, the most prominent Ukrainian energy companies, DTEK, Naftogaz Ukrainy, and NEC Ukrenergo, launched the #StopBloodyEnergy project (https://bloody.energy/) calling on Western companies to stop cooperating with Russia in fuel and energy industry. The site contains information about gas, coal (trading), oil service and machine-building companies that continue to cooperate with Russia. ENGIE is on the Bloody Energy list.
If Western countries continue to buy Russian energy, Russia will earn US$321 billion in 2022. For this amount, Russia can buy 80 000 armoured personnel carriers, 30 000 tanks, 5000 aircraft, 100 000 armoured vehicles and 3000 Buk missile systems, which will be used to kill Ukrainians.
The action will start at 19:00 on Friday.
Venue: ENGIE 1 Place Samuel De Champlain, 92400 Paris.
