Thus, according to the recommendations of the consulting company BDO and the auditing company KPMG, this event does not require the adjustment of the indicators of the annual report.

Experts of the auditing company KPMG substantiated this statement by the fact that significant changes in the economic conditions of business and the political environment, as a direct consequence of the war, occurred after the end date of the reporting period. Substantial changes mean the military invasion of russia on the territory of Ukraine and, as a result, the introduction of economic sanctions against the government and business of russia and Belarus by the international community.
