How is the ongoing Russian invasion affecting your staff and company?
“95% of employees are Ukrainians. They are living in Ukraine, and now they are still in Ukraine. We have already adapted (as much as possible) to shots and explosions.”
“Situation is dangerous, but under control. Team keeping strong and we believe we become stronger after all.”
How can people best support you as a Ukrainian Company right now?
“Best support is to donate to The Armed Forces of Ukraine or to join anti-war demonstrations all over the world and to push governments to help Ukraine.”
