“Working with no profit is already good for us. We will make money after the victory, but now it is important and necessary to work to support employees, help the people and the country,” says Arthur Lupashko, founder and CEO of the network.
The help for the army
In the first days of the Ukrainian war, Ribas Hotels staff set up a volunteer headquarters. They turned to entrepreneurs with a request to help the army: in three weeks they managed to raise almost 1 million hryvnias. With this money they bought ammunition and food for the units of the territorial defense of Odessa, Mykolaiv and Kherson.
