    If they really wanted to abandon their country, they could go to any other country with whom Belarus has normal relations. It could be the Czech Republic, it could be Finland, it could be Iceland, it could be, after all, Russia, but they decided to flee to those who sent tanks and artillery systems to the borders of their former homeland. There is no other way to call all these IT specialists, as scum. Congratulations to the Belarusians, they brought up generations of scum. It may be the loss of dozens of companies in the short term and a very unpleasant phenomenon associated with financial damage, but getting rid of pigs is still more beneficial.

          Boast about your rich personal experience of transferring your business "abroad" and sad to Russia? Do not be shy! Is it very interesting to know the name of your large successfully developing company? Just mind - "Horns and hooves" not to mention, O. Bender is busy! laughing

        Only the madman will transfer his business to Russia

        And only the one who has gone mad will lose his business in Russia. Where have sprats, radio engineering and Dzintars gone without Russia? Into oblivion ...
        By the way, American oil companies are holding on to assets in Russia with their teeth. For in the period 2014-2019, these were the only assets that made profit.
        The fact that the companies left for Lithuania does not mean that they will continue to make a profit in Belarus.

          This does not mean that they will receive anything at all, except for screaming and snot smeared on their cheeks now, like we are cool - we will leave and you will all die here. Belarus will not die, it will endure, and no one will need these shniki in that Latvia in a month or two.

    The fact that the "protests" in Belarus are controlled from the West is not a sign to anyone.
    The fact that the IT sector of Belarus works mainly for the West (the fruits of Lukashenka's multi-vector nature) is also no secret.
    From which it is not difficult to conclude that employers overgrown hired workers to move to a new place of work. Here's Lukashenko and your entire IT sector, for which you created tax conditions, and he worked for some uncle in the West, who received the main profit ...
    and now manages "your" IT sector with a snap of his fingers.

      ... The IT sector of Belarus works mainly for the West ...

      This is from the opera "no money ...", but where should they work? whoever paid for their services, they worked there. I do not think that Russian partners would be willing to pay even a fraction of what they earned there. The same is true in Russian regions, especially in those that themselves had to look for investors. The one-sided policy of the Russian elite, similarly, with great success, "lost" Ukraine, having managed to bite off only Crimea from the floating pie.

        What kind of nonsense?
        "Russia has lost ....." Oh, my God!
        "Big" the existence of "small" "half". This "little" without "big" is either death or poverty.
        Wake up and get out of your delusional state, when it seems to you that the whole world revolves around all sorts of ugly dwarf countries - this is NOT SO!
        And Lukashenka turned out to be not very smart. He created a tax haven for "his IT-schnicks" who, as it turned out, were not his at all, but those uncles in the West for whom they worked and who, thanks to Lukashenka's short-sightedness, greatly saved on production costs.
        I am amazed by people who admire Lukashenka. This is a marker. A marker of cretinism!

        Latvia will put them on real taxes secschas, Lukashenka's benefits do not shine for them at all. So these IT companies will blow away quickly, and customers will find new suckers who sit on the benefits of one state and plow for others

    Another reason will be to figure out how these it companies work for. And adjust the legal framework. For example, introduce a compensatory tax in the event of a business transfer to another country in the world.

    Not everything is so simple here: companies from the field of high technologies, where there is state capital, are sitting still. Game content developers want to run away - let them run, but there is a residue.
