We at UnisonSteadfast are shocked and distressed to see the war in Ukraine unfold through the unjustified military invasion by Putin’s regime. As a global organization with numerous ties to Eastern Europe and business partners in Ukraine, we feel directly affected by this criminal act of war.

Our thoughts are with our Ukrainian partners, their families as well as all people in Ukraine who now live in fear or have to leave their country to assure their safety. We also stand with the people in Russia who oppose this terrible war. 

An immediate end to this violence must now be the primary goal of all political action.

Shortly, we will share a separate statement on the general situation - particularly in Eastern Europe - and the associated risks for our mutual clients.
