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.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
