Samlerhuset Group BV condemns Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, which has tragic consequences for the population and threatens Europe.
Chief Executive Officer, Greg Prosser
We are deeply shocked and saddened by the devastating scenes of aggression and violence over the last week that has caused the displacement of many tens of thousands of Ukrainian people from their homes and marked the onset of what could be the largest humanitarian crisis on our continent in decades.
We express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people and fully support their brave resistance of this assault on their sovereignty, independence, and the right to self-determination.
With immediate effect, all companies within the Samlerhuset Group will be removing from sale all Russian or Russian partner related products. In addition, we will no longer distribute products relating to The Central Bank of the Russian Federation (also known as the Bank of Russia).
Furthermore, we fully support the scope and strength of the sanctions put in place by Europe and the local governments of the markets in which we operate and will implement them across our Group. We will continue to make future business decisions based on the evolving situation.
In the meantime, given the scale of the emerging crisis, we are working with our charitable partners in all markets to provide urgent support for aid and humanitarian assistance.
