Draslovka strongly condemns the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, which has led to tragic loss of life and has brought open war again to Europe.

Although now a member of NATO and the European Union, the Czech Republic, where Draslovka originates, has memory of occupation in the past, and we stand in deep solidarity and sympathy with the Ukrainian people and their struggle to protect their homes and nation. 

Draslovka has historically had limited exposure to Russia, with less than 0.5% of revenues originating from the country. Following the invasion, Draslovka immediately issued force majeure notices to all of its clients and distributors in the Russian Federation, and discontinued any product supplies to the country. Draslovka does not buy any raw materials from Russian suppliers. 

Regretfully, due to the escalating conflict, Draslovka took the difficult but safety-driven decision to pause supply to the small number of Ukraine-based clients.

At this juncture, it is natural to seek ways to help and contribute to humanitarian efforts under way to assist those in need, and we participate in both our personal and corporate capacities.

The thoughts of all Draslovka employees are with the Ukrainian people during these terrible times.
