DLG is deeply concerned by the war in Ukraine

DLG condemns the war in Ukraine, which is a violation of international law. As a partner to the European agricultural industry and a representative of a free Europe with the right to freedom, peace, the self-determination of all states and cross-border personal and professional dialogue, DLG views the attack on Ukraine with great concern. DLG's thoughts are with all of the people affected by the war and the farmers in this important agricultural region. Our special support is aimed at our employees and DLG members on the ground.

To offer the people in Ukraine quick and uncomplicated help, DLG is supporting the donation campaigns initiated by various national and international organisations. A list of these is available here.
