Official Statement
March 2022

In the dramatic context of Ukraine, we are following the evolution of events and particularly the situation of those directly affected.

Our efforts immediately focused on the safety and support of our 125 Ukrainian teammates, who also benefited from the solidarity of their colleagues in neighbouring countries to help them find accommodation, or even to welcome them into their homes or to help them with their administrative procedures.

Decathlon's solidarity unit based in Poland, which is close to the needs, centralises our donations (equipment and essential products worth €2.6 million) to local NGOs. We have also set up a solidarity fund with €1 million to date to support the affected populations.

In strict compliance with international sanctions, DECATHLON notes that the supply conditions are no longer met to continue its activity in Russia.

DECATHLON has to suspend the operation of its stores.

In accordance with our commitments, we will continue to support our 2,500 Russian teammates, some of whom have been involved in the company since 2006.
