My fellow Ukrainians!

Our country’s future is at risk. Internal political tension could develop into a continuous conflict and destroy the integrity of Ukraine. The use of force and illegal actions from outside are unacceptable. I believe that peace is the only solution to the crisis.

I urge all Ukrainian citizens to unite for the sake of a unitary, undivided Ukraine. Today, this is by far the most important thing. It is essential to keep a cool head, to not react to provocations and make reasonable, justified decisions.

Our strength is in the unity of business, government and society. Today, the economy is a real political force. Our task is to ensure the safety of people and their families, and the stable operations of all enterprises in the country. We will work 24/7 to maintain the vital functioning of Ukraine’s infrastructure. This is our main contribution to the country’s integrity.

I appeal to all politicians and Ukrainian officials to do everything possible to ensure territorial sovereignty and the restoration of democracy, and the inalienable rights and freedoms of citizens.

I appeal to the business community in Ukraine and business partners of Ukrainian business to join efforts and promote a peaceful settlement, without sparing any material resources.

I am certain that, through joint efforts, we can stand up for our future in a strong, united and independent Ukraine.

I now state and promise that the SCM Group, which currently represents 300,000 people and represents Ukraine from West to East, and from North to South, will do its best to maintain the integrity of our country.

Rinat Akhmetov

President, Systems Capital Management
