PostEurop, the European postal trade association, has committed to maintaining international postal exchanges between all regions, in the face of the escalating conflict in Ukraine.
The organization plans to focus on keeping the postal network open and ensuring that postal services and all items, including humanitarian aid, can reach Ukrainian citizens. Despite a number of disruptions, including the closure of Ukrainian airspace, the Ukrainian postal service remains open to serve the public.
In addition, several members of PostEurop have organized various national actions, many in cooperation with humanitarian organizations such as UNICEF and the Red Cross, to ensure the free delivery of parcels and the transportation of essential goods to the Ukrainian population.
The association stated, “PostEurop would like to take this opportunity to express its appreciation and gratitude to all its members for their unwavering commitment and dedication in working together to ensure a continuation of the postal service to and from Ukraine, as well as to enabling the flow of humanitarian aid during this difficult time.
“Special appreciation is given to Poczta Polska (Poland) and Slovenska Posta (Slovakia) for their efforts in ensuring that international postal exchanges with Ukraine remains possible. We are proud of the unprecedented cooperation shown and remain committed to assisting Ukrposhta during the conflict.”
