    You could think of it in the same vein as whether to continue an industrial partnership with Germany in 1939. Nobody knows Putin's plans, but it seems plausible he's embarking on a conquest to reunite the USSR. This won't make a difference today or tomorrow, but there's a moral question of contributing to future conflicts in some way. It's not entirely dissimilar from my own decision not to work in the "defense" industry, building weapons of war.
    It's not in the same vein because Russia already has what they need to get the job done. If OpenBLAS was actually producing the chips themselves and shipping them to Russia, this would be a totally different situation.
    What contract? The article didn't say Russia is actually paying any OpenBLAS developers anything. Do you know differently?
    I figured it was implied, as the article said "drop support", as in, they are directly working together. Perhaps I'm wrong and there is no contact, but the underlying point remains the same: Russia is probably going to drop them regardless.
    I think most of their government contractors are interested in the fastest/best/cheapest way to reach their goals, more than politics. But who knows? It could influence some.
    I wasn't referring to government contractors specifically. I'm not about to get political here so I'll shut up while I'm ahead.

    • This shows true values of "democracy and freedom", open hunt on anything Russian, sports, students at universities (yup, that's actualy happening), companies and people etc.

      I have a suggestion for "free world" as US president said, you should mark Russians with yellow stripes, so we can recognize them more easilly...

          With this, I agree with you,
          Also president of Ukraine had the crazy idea of talking about Ukraine in future have nuclear weapons, it got me scared to death..

          Russians can't shoot to kill on nazis because they use Civilians as shields..
          Russians can't soot to kill on regular army( those that choose to provoke them), when they are with civilians around
          And a lot more can be said, with all the constrains that are in place, its impossible to conduct an operation without civilians deads, unfortunately!

          And all this constraints also apply to the Russian losses,
          They will be amplified exactly because there are a lot of factors, that in a open war doesn't exist..

          That's why I am more apologist that they should talk , and solve the problem using diplomacy
          But that would imply that Ukraine will deal, themselves, with the nazis, and here is the big problem...because the nazis control too much.

          I just hope that they reach an agreement..

            Before the KFOR,
            There was NATO bombing Yugoslavia to death.. the most brutal war Europe saw after WWII.

              Never is a very strange word. Especially if we talk about the USSR days when Russians where trying hard to spread communism in the west. Where I live there where USSR agents recruiting people to the USSR in the 1920:ies and 1930:ies, later we found out that a large portion of the people that actually migrated to the USSR had later been killed by Stalin during the Great Purge of 1937.

              So never huh.

                Bombing is not invasion, and again you know very well why there was bombings but I guess genocide is ok sometimes? And the most brutal war since WW2 was not the bombings, that where the Yugoslav civil war itself.

                  That was not the most brutal war since WW2, the most brutal war happened in Bosnia when destruction of Yugosslavia started by "free world", just be factually correct. NATO attacks were brutal indeed, when they realized they failed to do any significant damage to the YU (mostly Serbian) military, they started with brutalities and economic destruction.

                    Albanians are used as "cannon meat" ground troops, NATO didn't dare to send their soldiers, there would be thausands of dead US soldiers if they did, so, there were thousands of Albanians dead instead.

                      Those values are called Russophobia,
                      Unfortunately they do exist,
                      And even though I am not even close to be a Russian, only the Ideals behind those shady movements, let me terrified..
                      Because those movements are themselves very close to nazi ideals..
