Infopulse CSR Actions as of March 21
During this horrible wartime of the Russian invasion, Infopulse does its utmost to support Ukrainian society and its citizens:
- A 3 million UAH donation was made to the ‘Come Back Alive’ Foundation, including the transfer of laptops and IT equipment for military use.
- Infopulse specialists have started more than 160 volunteering initiatives to help the Ukrainian army and civilians.

- We also reinforced the cooperation with a charitable foundation ‘Children of Hope and Love’ to help save lives in Ukraine.
- Tietoevry, Infopulse's parent company, has decided to stop its operations in Russia. Considering the ongoing military activities and the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, the company finds the continuation of their business in Russia ethically unsustainable.
