AudioUK as an organisation stands with Ukraine, not least those working in its audio and media industry, in these extremely difficult and distressing times.
As members will know, many creative organisations, along with those in areas such as sport, are currently boycotting the Russian Federation in various ways, due to its invasion of Ukraine. We therefore ask that any member production company considering any co-operation with the Russian Federation reviews that activity to take into account the current circumstances.
If any members want to support the actions to support people in Ukraine, commercial and community radio are promoting the Disaster Emergency Committee – through the DEC, every pound donated by the UK public will be matched by the UK government through its Aid Match scheme up to the value of £20 million: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal
