Lamborghini and Ferrari announce humanitarian donations to Ukraine


With the war in Ukraine continuing and Russia not withdrawing its troops, the international community continues to take a stand against the views of president Vladmir Putin. The auto industry – which has been affected by the conflict – is following the economic sanctions applied by several countries and halting its activities, whether production or import, in Russia.

Now, two major car companies have taken a stand against the violence in Eastern Europe and are stepping forward to help the affected citizens. In this way, Ferrari and Lamborghini have decided to completely stop all business with Russia. In addition, both will make donations to help Ukrainians in need.
