3. Standing on ones principles is the case here.

Most of us do it in one way or another.

Not buying from a Koch company, or at Chick-fil-a for example.

Already impoverished, the people of Russia will not likely notice any difference.

7. Feel free to insert "sarcasm" for me, please.

And thanks for your coaching. I feel much more compassionate toward others now. Tell me, how do I proceed in the future to suit the whim of proper people?

5. Expected, but

Russia no longer has final say. It's the International Space Station.

The Intergovernmental Agreement allows the Space Station Partners States to extend their national jurisdiction in outer space, so the elements they provide (e.g. laboratories) are assimilated to the territories of the Partners States.

The basic rule is that 'each partner shall retain jurisdiction and control over the elements it registers and over personnel in or on the Space Station who are its nationals' (Article 5 of the Intergovernmental Agreement).

This means that the owners of the Space Station - the United States, Russia, the European Partner, Japan and Canada - are legally responsible for the respective elements they provide. The European States are being treated as one homogenous entity, called the European Partner on the Space Station. But any of the European States may extend their respective national laws and regulations to the European elements, equipment and personnel.
