Today marks one year since Russia launched a full-scale and unprovoked invasion against Ukraine. The Kremlin has unleashed unthinkable suffering on Ukraine and its people, as well as a series of adverse consequences across the region, Europe and the world.
One year after the start of the invasion, Ukraine continues to stand strong, free and resilient, while the democratic world stands united in its support for Kyiv. At Aretera, we continue to stand in solidarity with Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, as well as our Ukrainian colleagues and clients. We support Ukraine and its people in their quest to achieve peace as only a Ukrainian victory can lead to a lasting peace and broader security in the Central and Eastern European region.
As Russia's war is entering its second year, we applaud governments for their steadfast commitment to Ukraine. As we remain confident in Ukraine's victory, the time is now to build the momentum and step up preparations for the country's recovery and reconstruction. We join governments, businesses and civil society organizations which stand ready to support what is expected to be one of the largest reconstruction efforts in economic history.
