    Not entirely clear from the article, but could be similar to M&S and Burger King who have tried to stop activity under their brand names in Russia but cannot as they don't own the rights. All traded through a third party and at best they can try to stop suppliers to their named business in Russia, but that's not even something they fully control.

    Nestle I think is a different matter and do own the rights and have decided to keep operating.

    Thanks for posting that. I have a couple of hundred euros' worth in my basket on their website and have emailed them to ask whether they are still trading in Russia. I'll be going elsewhere if they are, or if they don't reply.
