During Russia's war against Ukraine, global companies massively boycott the business of the occupier and leave the Russian market. For some, it is a matter of image, others cannot work banally due to sanctions.
Many companies that are directly or indirectly owned by Russians are still doing business in Ukraine. Among them are several thousand hotels or companies that provide accommodation services: from well-known hotel chains in Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa to mini-villas and estates in the Carpathians and children's recreation camps.

This all means that a % of the income for the brand and management goes to these citizens in Russia.We demand that Ukrainian hotels under the Premier, Rekardz and Mozart brands publicly renounce them!
