Dear Madam / Sir, 

On 24 February 2022, the Russian Federation launched a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine. The martial law is in effect in Ukraine since then. As a result, special legislation has been adopted in various areas, including that directly affecting business activity.
This guide provides a brief overview of the key features of such wartime legislation. The guide is structured as a set of responses to the most common questions raised and considered by international and Ukrainian businesses these days.
PLEASE NOTE that Ukrainian legislation undergoes frequent changes and adjustments during this extraordinary period. We aim to update this guide accordingly at regular intervals and as soon as feasible.  Please look for and use the latest version of this guide. We cannot exclude that, from time to time, the text available to you may not be up to date or may lack the latest developments. This guide should not be regarded as a substitute for a specific legal advice tuned in to your particular situation and needs. Please always seek our specific and personal advice to rely upon when taking decisions or planning actions for your business. Our Ukrainian legal experts are available to assist you in the most efficient and reliable manner, with quality standards usual for our global Firm.

With wishes of victory to Ukraine and the world and prosperity for your business in Ukraine,
