3 March 2022, Brussels, Belgium – IAB Europe today announced a suspension of all cooperation with IAB Russia and IAB Belarus, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine earlier this week and the announcement that Belarus is acting in support of the government of Vladimir Putin.
“We regret taking this step against partner organisations, but the brutality of Russia's unprovoked attack against a sovereign European country gives us no choice but to use every lever at our disposal to increase its isolation,” said IAB Europe CEO Townsend Feehan. “IAB Europe stands with our innocent Ukrainian colleagues in Kiev and elsewhere, who are continuing to work under shocking circumstances.”
