As the Russian invasion of Ukraine intensifies, we're speaking out.
As the violence in Ukraine escalates, many of us at Ramp are left overwhelmed with emotion.
Why we're speaking out
The situation in Ukraine is deteriorating quickly. The civilian death toll continues to rise, and families of those fighting the war have received little or no information about the involvement of their loved ones.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian armed forces - which have admirably repelled the Russian incursion into several cities - require more auxiliary equipment, specialized software, drones, personal body protection, training, and other supplies, to carry out their operations. And this all requires more funding.
At Ramp, we felt compelled to speak out.
We are a global company, but one with proud roots in neighboring Poland, and many of us are personally affected by this conflict.
Our generation has been fortunate enough to live and prosper in a peaceful and stable Europe - something so precious that it would have been unimaginable for generations before. And while our post-world-war dream of continued peace has been shattered, it's our collective responsibility to speak up.
The invasion of Ukraine is appalling. The world is in shock. In the absence of a short-term resolution, our hope is that Vladimir Putin’s act of desperation will only serve to hasten the end of his rule.
Ukraine, we stand with you.
