We continue to witness acts of aggression and military attacks against Ukraine, leading to the senseless loss of innocent lives. The images leave us with anguish and sorrow for the millions of individuals and families who have been displaced from their homes and forced to seek refuge throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
To show our support for the people of Ukraine, we have established a fundraising team through Save the Children and are encouraging our employees to help provide relief to the 7.5 million Ukrainian children who are caught in the middle of this crisis. Quark will match employee donations up to $10,000.
And as a provider of content design and content automation software, we have both an ethical and civic responsibility to support human rights and democracy. We are committed to doing everything possible to prevent our software and services from being used to abuse those rights or propagate this humanitarian disaster. Therefore, Quark has halted all new sales of and support for Quark products in Russia.
As part of our ongoing commitment to comply with US, EU and UK sanctions, we will make sure that none of our products and services are being used by “prohibited entities.”
We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and stand with the free world in calling for the end of hostilities, restoration of peace, and respect for Ukraine as a sovereign nation and the protection of its citizens.
