Klaus Schwab Ends Friendship With Putin Over Ukraine Escalation
Is Schwaby trying to make us like the war?
The essence of our organization is its belief in respect, dialogue, and collaborative and cooperative efforts.
We therefore deeply condemn the aggression by Russia against Ukraine, the attacks and atrocities.
Our full solidarity is with Ukraine’s people and all those who are suffering innocently from this totally unacceptable war.
We will do whatever is possible to help and actively support humanitarian and diplomatic efforts.
We only hope that – in the longer-term – reason will prevail and that the space for bridge-building and reconciliation once more emerges.
Klaus Schwab and Børge Brende
To be perfectly honest the last sentence makes me think WEF isn’t done with Russia yet.
This could also be read as WEF distancing itself from Russia because it has to, but still not giving up on restoring ties to its pupils there “in the longer term”.

WEF has actually gone and purged Vladimir Putin from its website.
