As a result of the situation in Ukraine

March 03, 2022

The security situation in Europe is more uncertain than for some time following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As a result of the invasion, Russia is not only violating Ukraine’s sovereignty, but is also breaching the UN Treaty and international law. This is an act which must be condemned. During a period in which many people feel powerless, we can all contribute with something.

For Vinge’s part, this primarily occurs through our advice, for example, concerning sanctions. We have also decided to donate SEK 250 000 to our co‑operating partner Save the Children in order to support them in their efforts to help Ukraine’s 7.5 million children and their families.

We have no presence in Russia and nor do we have any Russian or Belarusian transactions, with only a few individual engagements from Russian clients over the last few years. We have no ongoing engagements from Russian companies or individuals connected to the regime. Since the outbreak of the war, we have not accepted engagements from any Russian or Belarusian companies at all and will not do so.
