烏克蘭的事態發展和 Wolters Kluwer 的回應

全世界都以越来越恐惧和怀疑的态度关注着对乌克兰的入侵。威科集团与乌克兰和国际社会站在一起,谴责这种毫无正当理由的侵略,这种行为在欧洲的心脏地带造成了人道主义危机。

上周,威科集团一直在仔细考虑我们在俄罗斯和白俄罗斯的客户关系的未来,我们在这些地区的业务覆盖有限,而且我们最重要的考虑是:我们的行动对这些地区的人们意味着什么。我们将停止在俄罗斯和白俄罗斯开展业务,除非出于令人信服的人道主义理由需要使用我们的某些健康产品。

我们继续以多种方式支持乌克兰和受影响地区。直接受影响地区的当地团队以及我们在欧洲和世界各地的其他团队正在提供广泛的支持,包括提供经济援助、住房、用品、衣物、设备和工作空间等。

我们的健康团队正在为乌克兰和有需要地区的医疗保健服务提供者提供对 UpToDate 的持续客户访问,并加入属于 WHO Hinari 计划的 Research4Life 平台,为乌克兰医疗机构提供对期刊内容的访问。法律与监管部门正在向律师们提供法律研究资源,以帮助乌克兰难民

威科集团还向支持难民和受俄罗斯入侵影响的其他人的援助组织(包括红十字会)提供大量捐款。

Special reports from U.S. legal experts

To help businesses and legal professionals navigate this volatile and quickly evolving crisis, Wolters Kluwer legal experts have developed special reports covering the U.S. response.

“Unprecedented information warfare prior to the invasion put U.S. companies and their attorneys on notice that war was not only possible, but likely,” said Matthew Garza, Senior Legal Analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “This series of special reports will help them track the U.S. response as they continue to move to protect clients with interests in the region.”

The following special reports are available:

  • Cybersecurity: As cyber threats increase with the ongoing invasion, experts continue to raise the alarm concerning potential cyberattacks against Ukrainian targets as well as attacks against the U.S. and other NATO countries. Recent federal cybersecurity action includes provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act that kicked off rulemaking to require reporting of ransomware payments and create a Cyber Incident Review Office within CISA. The SEC also proposed rules to enhance and standardize disclosure regarding cybersecurity risk management, strategy, governance, and incident reporting. 
  • Intellectual Property: Several major IP offices around the world have halted cooperative efforts with their Russian counterparts. On the contrary, IP offices throughout Europe have pledged assistance and support to Ukrainian rights holders whose pending actions are disrupted by the conflict. The USPTO announced that it had terminated engagement with officials from Russia’s IP Agency (Rospatent), the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO) and the national IP office of Belarus, an action that will affect Russian rights holders seeking to extend protection to the U.S., as well as U.S. businesses that continue to operate in Russia. 
  • The SEC: U.S. companies and private issuers subject to SEC disclosure regulations continue to monitor the crisis and prepare to potentially update existing SEC disclosures to reflect the risk of doing business in Russia and Ukraine countries. With reports that some diplomatic talks have occurred between Russia and Ukraine, businesses might begin to reconsider their decisions to cease business operations in Russia, but need to remain mindful that sanctions may not be lifted for some period of time after the conflict ends. 
  • Sanctions and Compliance: Sanctions are being imposed at a rapid pace, and financial institutions and the attorneys counseling them are scrambling to navigate the regulations intended to ensure compliance with the sanctions and trade embargoes against Russia, hoping to prevent potential Russian sanction evasion attempts. Sanctions compliance and the prevention of actions taken as a back-door means to evade sanctions requires diligence, strict monitoring of OFAC’s SDN List, and the implantation of OFAC and FinCEN guidance, starting with an effective SCP that is wholly supported by management. 
  • Economic Sanctions: Since the start of the invasion, President Biden has taken many executive actions that have led to a slew of economic sanctions against a wide swath of the Russian economy, its leadership, and oligarchy. The first action taken by OFAC was sanctioning two major Russian state-owned financial institutions, imposing additional restrictions on Russian sovereign debt, and sanctioning five Kremlin-connected elites. OFAC has also sanctioned additional regime elites and business executives who are associates and facilitators of the Russian regime.
