Vogue has ended all cooperation with Russia in response to the war in Ukraine
Since 1934, sustainability and following ethical principles have been at the core of Vogue’s business operations. For this reason, Vogue terminated all its business cooperation with Russia in February 2022 in response to the war in Ukraine. This decision reflects Vogue’s strong commitment to ethical business practices and our stance against actions that undermine global peace and stability.
"Vogue firmly believes that business decisions must align with ethical considerations, especially when it comes to global conflicts and human rights issues," says Rita Holmberg, CEO at Nanso Group. " We stand in solidarity with those affected by the war in Ukraine and are committed to redirecting our efforts toward markets that share our values."
Prior to the war, Vogue collaborated with a Russian importer. Due to Russian export regulations, specific texts, including the importer's name and material contents in Russian, had to be displayed on Vogue’s product packaging. The outbreak of the Ukrainian war marked a turning point to this cooperation. In light of Russia's involvement in the conflict, Vogue immediately made the decision to discontinue cooperation with Russia. As part of this transition, all texts related to Russian exports were removed from Vogue’s packaging, signifying our departure from the market.
Unfortunately, it often takes time for all the older packages to be sold and subsequently removed from our retailers' inventory. As a result, it is possible to find older packages with Russian texts on the market, even though our cooperation with Russia was discontinued in February 2022. We extend our appreciation to our valued customers for their patience and understanding during this process.
