MGI Worldwide’s position on the invasion of Ukraine

For 75 years our fundamental role has been to bring people together across borders for business and friendship. Celebration of both our cultural differences and our equality as human beings underpin all we do.

In this spirit, we unequivocally condemn the barbaric invasion of a sovereign state, Ukraine, by the Russian State. We know that many Russians do not support this terrible act. We express our solidarity with our colleagues and friends in Ukraine and pray for their families’ safety and will do all we can to help them.

We are not an NGO or a charity but we are all about personal, human connections and can try to help.

If any of you have family in Ukraine who have left, or are trying to leave, and need support, please contact our global CEO, Chris Borneman () or our European Director, Zoltan Paksy (, and we will reach out to members in Europe to see if we can help. There are no promises but we will do all we can.
