Following a period of operational suspension from March last year, the decision was taken in October 2022 to wind-down fully our business operations in Russia. That process remains ongoing and our priority remains responsible implementation of the measures and the support of the employees and partners affected by the decision.
We always seek to ensure that we comply fully with international trade sanctions. In doing so, we employ various business processes and checks, including the utilization of various sanctions screening and partner due diligence tools. Through the exercises of these processes, the clear goal is to ensure that we do not conduct trade or other business activities with sanctioned individuals, corporates or nations.
