Statement regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine

We strongly condemn the Russian Federation’s war actions in Ukraine. New investments and contact with the authorities in Russia and Belarus have been suspended until further notice.

Our position in this matter coincides with the statement from Norwegian-Russian Chamber of Commerce (NRCC), where Kirkenes Fondsforvaltning is a member. Read the statement here.

Uttalelse om den russiske invasjonen av Ukraina

Vårt standpunkt i denne saken er sammenfallende med uttalelsen fra Norsk-Russisk Handelskammer (NRCC), hvor Kirkenes Fondsforvaltning er medlem. Les uttalelsen her.
