  Ukraine has been defending itself against Russia for a month now, while companies are doing everything possible to defend the home front. We are very grateful to the companies that continue to work, volunteer, and provide financial, material, and humanitarian assistance to the country during the war. Each of their stories fascinates and strengthens the sense of unity, involvement, and pride in the EBA community.
