Castrén & Snellman Condemns Russia's Invasion and Provides Humanitarian Support to Ukraine

We at Castrén & Snellman condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The attack is a violation of international law, and there is no justification for it. 

As lawyers and attorneys, we promote the rule of law. At the heart of this mission lie justice, peace, safety, security and human rights, which are undisputable and concern all of us. What happens in Ukraine is against all these basic principles. 

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and our friends and colleagues in Ukraine and in Russia, where we used to have offices in St Petersburg and Moscow.

We give our support to Ukraine through the international charities Unicef and Red Cross and contribute through our pro bono partners. And when it comes to our own business, we will take the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its repercussions into account in reviewing our client relations.
