DPI statement war in Ukraine

8 March 2022

The management of DPI is shocked about the invasion of the Russian military in Ukraine and the resulting war.

In line with the EU sanctions, DPI suspends all formal and institutional partnerships with organisations in the Russian Federation and Belarus until further notice. This means that no further financial transactions nor exchange of data or knowledge can take place.

We have contacted the Russian representatives in our community, and we will stay in touch with them on a personal basis.

We sincerely hope the peace in Ukraine will be restored soon and that we will be able to reactivate the cooperation with all our partners, contributing to a better world.


Ernst Jan van Klinken, Managing Director DPI

Jacques Joosten, Chair Supervisory Board DPI
