Solidarity with Ukraine and our Ukrainian colleagues
Since 24 February Ukraine is attacked by Russian military forces. The fighting has already reached the capital of Kyiv where headquarters and factory of the packaging gravure printer and ERA member Ukrplastic is located. In 2005 and 2016 ERA’s Packaging and Decorative Gravure Conferences were successfully organised in Kyiv in co-operation with Ukrplastic. In the south eastern city of Dnipro are the headquarters and factory of the ERA member Kontinent, a manufacturer of wallpaper, which has already suffered heavily by the ongoing warlike conflict in the Donbass region. We hope that both companies can return to normal work soon. We express our solidarity with our Ukrainian colleagues and the Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom and democracy, as well as their aspiration to belong to the community of the European nations.
