The Born to Win on their Twitter announced the termination of any ties with the ESforce holding:
In Ukraine, the sixth day of the war. The Russian army continues to shell residential areas: hundreds of thousands of residents have fled their homes, while the rest continue to fight for the future of the country. When people die and thousands of destinies in their native country are forever destroyed, there is no time for eSports.
While NAVI employees and players spend their days in bomb shelters, the ESFORCE holding publicly denies all the horror that is currently taking place in Ukraine.
We consider the position of this company unacceptable and anti-human. NAVI terminate any cooperation with the holding, including RuHub, Epic Esports Events, Cybersport.ru and Virtus.pro.
Separately, we want to express our gratitude to all the employees of the holding, who were not afraid of pressure and expressed their position. Thanks!
The holding, which was named ESforce, was founded in 2015 with the money of Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov. Which yesterday came under sanctions imposed by the EU against Russian oligarchs for financing Putin's criminal regime.
