Trafigura statement regarding the war in Ukraine

Published on2 Mar 2022

Singapore, 2 March 2022 - Trafigura unconditionally condemns the war, the violence in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis this is causing.


Ukraine is a country where Trafigura operates an office with a number of full-time staff. We are actively assisting our staff in Ukraine and their safety and security is our utmost priority. The Trafigura Foundation is supporting charities providing aid to refugees from Ukraine.


Trafigura does not operate any assets in Russia and we have no directors or corporate officers in any external Russian entity.


Following news of the terrible violence being inflicted, we immediately froze our investments in Russia. We are now reviewing the options in respect of our passive shareholding in Vostok Oil in which we have no operational or managerial input.
