flag of ukraine with text on it

On February 24, 2022, the peaceful life of the Ukrainian citizens was disrupted by the russian occupation forces, who began shelling and capturing the east and south of our country. Deaths, destruction of infrastructure, and threats to the economy – this is what we’re facing as a nation now. During these unprecedented times, Existek does everything possible to help our nation in general and support loved ones in particular in such challenging times.

Support for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Our company has donated more than UAH 300,000 to a special fundraising account to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Some employees volunteer, participate in territorial defense, and donate their personal funds to help the country win the war.

Established workflow. Despite the hostilities, Existek continues to operate in regular mode and provide services to customers. All employees continue working full-time remotely or from office. Day after day, we do our best to maintain the usual workflow to prove that nothing can affect the quality of our services.

Customer support. Our clients express support and willingness to help. We can’t express how much it means to us and how encouraging it is for our team. Also, we’ve received offers for temporal relocations from our customers. Existek is grateful for all the support and happy to continue the collaboration with our excellent clients.

Helping employees. We highly value every employee and want them and their families to be safe and protected. We provide full assistance with relocation and material resources and do our best to help them feel appreciated and supported. 

Calm situation in our region. Our office is located in Vinnytsia, which is quite far from hostilities. The situation in the city is relatively calm. Air-raid sirens periodically go off, but territorial defense is well-organized, so people in Vinnitsya can function as usual. Some state-owned enterprises ceased operations during the war, but IT companies weren’t affected.

situation in our region

Mobilization and its effect on our employees. On February 25, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on total mobilization in Ukraine.

In general, there are 4 waves of mobilization:

  • The first stage of the operational reserve is former servicemen under 40 years of age.
  • The second stage of the operational reserve is servicemen who have served or currently serve in the military under a contract.
  • The mobilization reserve includes conscripts who graduated from military departments of the universities as reserve officers and were not drafted during the previous mobilization waves.
  • Public reserve involves other citizens from 18 to 60 years old who do not have physical restrictions on conscription and can be drafted in military formations only during a special period (a worst-case scenario of a full-scale war).

At present, only one of our staff members person has decided to voluntarily join the army.

More than 90% of our employees did not serve in the army, so they cannot be drafted under the current circumstances until the fourth and last wave of mobilization. Now the Ukrainian army is fully equipped with military men after the first and second waves of mobilization. We don’t expect that any of our employees will be drafted anytime soon.  So, work remains the core occupation for our employees, and they are fully able to provide high-quality services to our clients.

A new office in Romania. We’re working on setting up a new office in Romania to scale up and continue delivering our services to a wider audience. This opportunity will allow us to better organize the working process and increase work efficiency.

In conclusion. These days Ukraine is the last line of defense between the civilized world and Russia, and we stay strong in our will to protect our country. The situation in Ukraine is tough, but the best thing we can do now is to continue working and maintaining Ukraine’s image among our clients. Ukrainian people have already withstood a lot of challenges and we believe that this is only one of the barriers on the rocky road to a better future. That’s why Existek continues to work and support all current projects. Thanks again to all our customers, for their support and endurance. We’re doing everything that depends on us and hope that things will get back to normal as soon as possible.  

Stay strong, keep fighting, and Slava Ukraini!
