Wargaming has stated its commitment to help its Ukrainian employees. The company behind World of Tanks will help employees and their families relocate to other countries and will donate $1 million for humanitarian aid.
Wargaming called the safety and security of its employees its top priority.
“Currently, all available company resources are helping and supporting our 550+ colleagues: providing them with alternate housing, early salary payments, additional funds to aid travel and relocation,” the statement reads. “We are helping our employees’ families to travel to neighboring countries and organizing accommodations for them.”
According to App2Top.ru, Wargaming Kyiv won’t relocate all its employees, offering help to the ones who want to leave the country.
On top of that, Wargaming Kyiv will donate ₴30 million (around $1 million) to the Ukrainian Red Cross. This sum will be used to support Ukrainian hospitals and doctors, as well as displaced citizens.
Wargaming is a Belarusian game company headquartered in Cyprus. It also has offices in the US, France, Russia, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan.
It’s also been reported that Wargaming fired VP and creative director Sergey Burkatovskiy after he expressed his support for the “operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) and the LPR (Luhansk People’s Republic).”
