Sanctions make Russia much healthier, as Coca-Cola and McDonald stop selling their junk in Russia

Sanctions make Russia much healthier, as Coca-Cola and McDonald stop selling their junk in Russia

I don’t understand… Is it the sin and its punishment or the sin and its reward?
The Coca-Cola Company has joined the exodus of international companies shutting down operations in Russia because of the war Putin started, against militarizing Ukraine with NATO weapons ,on the Russian border.

The Western countries that use Ukraine as a Cannon fodder, claim that Everything started, when Putin hit back.

However, many American companies suspending their businesses in the country amid mounting public pressure on corporations to punish Moscow.

I'm not sure if financially-wise, losing the 144 million customers of the Russian market is really considered a punishment for the Russians or an economic suicide for the boycotting companies.

What I am sure of is that stopping the poisoning of the Russian market through junk food is a huge reward for the life expectancy of the Russians, and not really a punishment.

If you support Ukraine, I would recommend stopping the sale of Coca-Cola and McDonalds junk food in Ukraine, so that their heroic citizens would be stronger and healthier.

If you really want to punish all the 144 million Russians because of Putin, I recommend subsidizing the price of Coca-Cola and McDonalds in Russia, cutting the junk food price by half, to double junk food sales instead of banning them from junk consumption. Right?
