KPMG in Russia and Belarus is no longer part of KPMG global network of member firms. The decision was done by the global team because of the aggressive action of the current Russian Government towards Ukraine.
“We believe we have a responsibility, along with other global businesses, to respond to the Russian government’s ongoing military attack on Ukraine. As a result, our Russia and Belarus firms will leave the KPMG network. KPMG has over 4,500 people in Russia and Belarus, and ending our working relationship with them, many of whom have been a part of KPMG for many decades, is incredibly difficult. This decision is not about them – it is a consequence of the actions of the Russian Government. We will seek to do all we can to ensure we provide transitional support for former colleagues impacted by this decision», - a spokesperson for KPMG International said.
KPMG condemns the Russian government’s military invasion of Ukraine in violation of international law. KPMG colleagues and firms across the world are united in our support for the people of Ukraine and all of those across the region who have been affected by this senseless military action.
