Today, industriAll Europe is publishing an online monitor that intends to keep a watch on the economic and social impacts in our sectors of the war against Ukraine and the economic sanctions on the Russian Federation.

IndustriAll Europe strongly condemns the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and stands in full solidarity with the people of Ukraine, our brothers and sisters in the trade union movement and all working people caught up in the war. We are touched by the solidarity our member organisations have shown as they mobilise financial and material support, and are actively engaged in the broader humanitarian efforts across the continent. We call for dialogue and talks for peace. We call for an immediate stop to this brutal and unprovoked war!

The impact of the military agression against Ukraine and the necessary sanctions on Russia already go far beyond Ukraine. The economic links between Europe, Ukraine and Russia are deep and complex and as a result, European industries and their workers are impacted by the consequences of the conflict.

Our monitor intends to keep a watch on economic and social impacts in our sectors, on initiatives of the trade union movement, intiatives in multinational companies and on social partner intiatives. It will be updated regularly with information gathered with the help of our affiliates.
