Ubisoft announced that they are providing support, mostly in the form of money and safe houses, to its Ukrainian employees, following the Russian invasion. The French company has two teams in Ukraine: one in Kyiv and one in Odessa.
Here she is Ubisoft’s full statement. “At Ubisoft, our hearts are with our teams in Ukraine, and we are providing them with support and assistance as they go through this difficult time. The safety and well-being of our teams and their families is our first concern, and Ubisoft is completely mobilized to support them from now on. ”
“Over the past few months, Ubisoft has been monitoring the situation closely and putting measures in place to help protect our teams. Last week, we recommended that our employees take refuge in a place they consider safe. Ubisoft has provided everyone with team members in Ukraine additional funds to help them cover exceptional costs, such as those related to their travel and relocation, and paid their salaries in advance to account for any disruption to banking systems. ”
“Ubisoft is providing accommodation in neighboring countries where teams and their families can find shelter if they wish and are able to. To ensure we stay in close contact with all teams, we have set up hotlines to answer their questions and to their needs and we have put in place an emergency communication system should the infrastructure become unstable. We will continue to adapt and strengthen our assistance as the situation evolves. ”
