WHC stands with Ukraine

WHC stands with Ukraine

Share this article

It’s with shock and horror that we’re witnessing Russia's escalating attack on Ukraine and its people. Our hearts go out to our Ukrainian colleagues trapped in the midst of this crisis, along with their families.

WHC joins a growing rank of technology companies in demanding an immediate end to the violence and Russia’s unprovoked invasion.

We’re also taking action. As of today, WHC is:

  • Stopping all .RU domain registrations indefinitely
  • Declining orders originating from the Russian federation
  • Setting up a donation drive for humanitarian efforts in Ukraine through the Canadian Red Cross - WHC will match all employee contributions to this cause
  • Inviting all Canadian businesses and individuals to #StandWithUkraine in condemning this war and increasing pressure on Putin to back down

While we understand that these measures may have an impact on reasonable Russian citizens who oppose this war, we refuse to sit idle while innocent civilians are being killed by an unstable and corrupt regime in an unprovoked act of extreme aggression. WHC will always take a stand for what we believe is right, and this includes standing with Ukraine today.

If you’re a Canadian or own a small business in Canada, here’s what you can also do to help: 

  • Donate to organizations that can provide rapid assistance to those most in need, like the Canadian Red Cross
  • Demand more action from your partners, suppliers and service providers, and choose to do business only with companies that actively support Ukraine and Ukrainians
  • Help build awareness by joining the #StandWithUkraine movement

Слава Україні! Героям Слава!
