“Over the past week, we have witnessed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine with both shock and deep concern. The remarkable resilience of the Ukrainian people has been a source of inspiration for me and for the entire world. Together, we have a longstanding tradition of supporting communities near and far, especially in times like these.  This is one of the many reasons I am proud to be part of the Key team.”
