Boycott russia app – Push companies to leave

V češtině: Aplikace “Push to leave” pro bojkot firem, které naplno podnikají v Rusku.

CZ Shrnutí: Aplikace Push to leave funguje na základě žebříčku americké Yale univerzity, která známkuje firmy podle následující stupnice:

  • F – znamená, že firma ani nezastavila investice v Rusku, podniká, jakoby se žádná strašlivá válka nekonala.
  • D – firmy, které zastavily investice na ruském trhu.
  • C – je pro firmy, které zastavily část svého podnikání v Rusku.
  • B – znamená kompletní odchod z Ruska s možností jakéhosi návratu.
  • A – pak znamená kompletní odchod, zřejmě bez možnosti jakéhokoliv návratu.

ODKAZ KE STAŽENÍ APLIKACE

Odchody firem z Ruska jsou velmi důležitou součástí tlaku na zastavení války – zahraniční investice tvořily až 40% ruské ekonomiky. Aplikaci vyvíjejí a udržují dobrovolničtí programátoři ze Lvova ve svém volném čase – je odzkoušená, stabilní a vyšla její nová verze. Dostupná je pro Android Google Play a také iOS iPhone Appstore – nově tedy používá férovou Yale stupnici na základě konzultací českých a ukrajinských dobrovolníků. Aplikace je zdarma, je to něco na způsob české aplikace “Bez Andreje” – tentokrát ale dává zákazníkovi po skenování kódu rychlou informaci, jak se která firma chová na ruském trhu. Rozhodnutí je pak na zákazníkovi. Je také snadné upozornit na problém, nebo pomáhat nahrát nový kód.

Existuje také nadšenecká Facebooková skupina “Aplikace Push to leave – česká fanskupina.”

EN introduction: Many people want to boycott, make personal sanctions or embargo for companies still staying in russia, reluctant to leave russian market. All is because of brutal terorr war of russian state against Ukraine. Western companies still staying in there are making surprisingly important part of russian economy.

Yale grading and beyond – embargo sanctions mobile phone app for consumers

Therefore, for example successfull Yale scale grading index was created. It impacted a lot of companies. But there is still room to create more attention of EU/US consumers. Volunteers globally want to put more pressure on companies still staying in russia. Here comes application program – apps for iOS and Android. These are apps easy to use to scan EAN / GTIN barcodes in shop and quickly see what is the result. We (activists from Action with Ukraine and Synergy chat) identified the Push to leave app as the most promising one. And we are trying to support developers of the app to spread the word about it. Here please find link to their download page.

How the iOS and Android boycott app works

Ukrainian app Push to leave is bringing the simplicity of app together with strong, fair and reliable Yale scale index. App is available for both iOS – iPhones and Android phones. Search is possible by text: pleae write first 3 letters and press search to find if the company is in the database. Even easier is to scan barcode in shop and see if the manufacturer of your product is “red , yellow or green”. Developers, volunteers are working to fully implement the transparent and fair Yale grade. Thre plan to use the grade in easy-to-read way:

  • Red grade F (companies not event pretending to leave russia, following sanctions in best case)
  • Red grade D (mostly companies with better PR, saying that they stop investments etc.)
  • Yellow grade C (partially leaving the market)
  • Green grade B (left russia)
  • Green grade A (left russia with no backdoors, completely).

Push to leave app is currently using open data from Dont fund war project who takes them from Yale team (this link heading to article regarding Yale team, how it started).

Data sources of western companies in russian market covered by app – for personal embargo, sanctions, boycott

Several types of scans can happen – here we describe briefly how they are managed:

  • Companies in Yale list – that is easiest, Yale has strong team and app is following the data – if any inaccuracy is reported via app by users, the team reports back to creators
  • Companies outside Yale list – these are published independently and any inaccuracy reported is either handled via local database or reporting to dontfundwar.com
  • Barcodes or companies missing – after scan which found no match, this barcode is recorded into database and team of volunteers is being created to process them and include into database
