On February 24, 2022, the Russian Government started a full-scale invasion of Ukraine throughout all territory of Ukraine, sending missiles, bombs, tanks, sabotage grounds against military and civilians. Shelling is being sent both from Russian-Ukrainian and Belarusian-Ukrainian borders. 

The full-scale invasion is the continuation of the aggression against our country сommenced in 2014. The peace on the European continent was disrupted and Ukraine is on the frontline of it. Residential housing, utilities, critical infrastructure, hospitals, schools, kindergartens are being destroyed all over Ukraine. 

The Crane IP team is staying in Kyiv. We have been helping Ukraine financially or by volunteering and doing all we can to help to protect our homeland.

We believe that all our clients and colleagues are standing by us and seeking ways to help Ukraine.  The list of specific actions that we encourage you to take if you wish to further help our country is below: 

1. Use and share only reliable sources of information. It is critically important that the world receives only true and corroborated facts about the Russian aggression against Ukraine. You may rely on these official Ukrainian sources:
