SSAB has decided to make a donation to UNHCR, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, in support of Ukraine. UNHCR is present in the country with a structure already set up and also has vast experience in rapid response, relief and refugee assistance, including people fleeing inside Ukraine.
SSAB fully condemns Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the hostility toward Ukraine and its people.
“We are living a situation we never thought we would witness again in Europe,” Martin Lindqvist, CEO and President of SSAB says. “We are monitoring the situation closely and can only hope for a peaceful solution before too long.”
All of SSAB’s operations in Ukraine have been suspended and all shipments and sales to Russia and Belarus have been discontinued.
