The company has published the payment order, confirming that on Monday “Gaujas koks” transferred a million euros to the charity fund “Ziedot.lv” for the support of Ukraine.
The owner of “Gaujas koks”, Vitalijs Chmihovs, emphasizes that all Latvian residents must now forget about personal comfort and “stand up” to defend such human values as justice, conscience, goodness and humanism.
At the same time, Chmikhov states that the company will rent apartments and guest houses for the accommodation and maintenance of Ukrainian refugees.
“Of course, it can affect the development of companies, but today it is much more important to overcome evil with good – deeds, attitude and actions,” says the company’s manager.
The company “Gaujas koks” was registered in 1991, and its share capital is 1,558,044 euros. The sole owner of the company is Chmikhov.
