This year’s World Economic Forum in Davos is guided by the motto “Cooperation in a Divided World,” but as Forum Chairman Borge Brende stressed, the meeting is taking place against the backdrop of the world’s most complicated geopolitical and economic situation in decades. Last year, the Russian invasion of Ukraine was the theme of the world’s most important business meeting. This year, discussions are centered around the multiplying crises, but the issue of the Russian – Ukrainian war is still one of the most relevant topics. Modern business, ethical and socially responsible, is the answer to some of the challenges of the new reality.

Since the day that Russian aggression towards Ukraine started, he has been personally involved into helping the people of Ukraine. His company- Inpost has provided hundreds of trucks and countless hours of work of it’s employees.
