On February 26, 2022, Cimpress CEO and Founder Robert Keane issued the following public statement, which can also be viewed on Cimpress’ LinkedIn:
“With our acquisition of VistaCreate and Depositphotos last October, Vista welcomed over 450 team members from Ukraine. In that short amount of time, I’ve met and gotten to know many of our new colleagues, both virtually and several times in person in Kyiv.
As I watch this invasion unfold in real time, I’m both horrified and heartbroken, and have heard directly from our team members in Kyiv how this is impacting them, their families and their country. Russia’s unprovoked atrocities against Ukraine and its democracy have no place in our world.
Last month, Vista began taking measures to try to ensure our team members’ safety and provide our team members with emergency financial and logistical assistance. We will continue to do so as long as necessary. We stand with our Ukrainian colleagues and their loved ones during this time, and our number one priority is their safety.
Vista and its parent company Cimpress join the world in publicly condemning the ruthless attack by Vladimir Putin and the Russian Armed Forces against the country and the people of Ukraine.”
