Nokia’s statement on Ukraine
Updated 3 March 2022
We are deeply concerned about the invasion in Ukraine and our hearts go out to all those affected by this conflict.
Nokia believes in international collaboration and peaceful co-existence as the best way to improve living standards across the world. As an organization, we support multi-lateral engagement and efforts at de-escalation to stop conflict.
As always, the safety and wellbeing of our people is our top priority and we continue to work to support any affected employees and their families. We have established a crisis management team who are closely monitoring the situation and working to mitigate its potential impacts on our people and operations.
We are taking a number of steps to support our employees in Ukraine including:
- We are in direct and regular contact with our employees, to check on their situation and any requests for support.
- We have approved additional financial support for our employees to support their own safety response measures, including advance payment of salary and extra cash for expenses.
- We have upgraded our employees’ mobile subscriptions to the highest possible level to help ensure they can continue to communicate.
Our focus is on ensuring we comply with all sanctions and restrictions on Russia and have put a pause on our delivery system. This is a complex situation which is evolving rapidly and we continue to assess it.
