SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE
On 24 February 2022, Russia started a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, where key Kernel assets are located, escalating its aggression against Ukraine which was commenced in 2014. Reliable evidence confirms that Russian troops are making indiscriminate attacks including air raids, ballistic missile strikes and bombings, targeting residential housing, utilities, and critical infrastructure all over Ukraine.
