Team ANNA

We want to state clearly: we are shocked and horrified by Russia’s actions in Ukraine. We condemn it unreservedly – it is a catastrophic crime.

Although ANNA is a British company, its founders are originally from Russia. We came to the UK five years ago because we saw no future in Putin’s Russia.

We live here in the UK, our families are here and we plan to spend the rest of our lives here. We are proud that ANNA is a British company – our head office is in London; our customer support centre is in Cardiff; our customers span the length and breadth of Britain. We also have a global family: we have colleagues working in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, Georgia, Spain and across the world.

We want to state clearly: we are shocked and horrified by Russia’s actions in Ukraine. We condemn it unreservedly – it is a catastrophic crime.

We are working hard to get ANNA employees and their families out of Ukraine as quickly and safely as possible. We are also working to get ANNA employees out of Russia if they want to leave.

We continue to hope and pray that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine comes to an end as soon as possible.

Boris Dyakonov and Eduard Panteleev, 
co-founders, ANNA
