Ukraine designates Unilever as 'international sponsor of war'

Ukraine's National Corruption Prevention Agency (NACP) added British corporation Unilever to the "international sponsors of war" list for not exiting Russia.

Despite promises to suspend imports and exports of its products to and from Russia at the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Unilever continues to operate in Russia.

"Unilever must leave Russia now, or history will remember its complicity in this war."

Unilever is one of the world's leading suppliers of food, personal- and home care products. It owns over 400 brands and sells products in more than 190 countries, including Ukraine.
