Ukrainian HVAC industry to Europe: Stop AC, refrigeration supplies for Russia and Belarus

Adapted from Likond Press Center:

The Ukrainian Refrigeration Association has called on European manufacturers of refrigeration and air conditioning solutions to stop supplying equipment to Russia and Belarus. The categories of products mentioned were refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment and their components “of all customs codes; refrigerants and raw materials for their production of all customs codes; electronic products and their components; and software for refrigeration and air conditioning”.

Serhiy Anashkinwho heads the Ukrainian Refrigeration Association, addressed the European Association AREA to thank those who offered their support through letters and offers of assistance to Ukraine.

Mr Anashkin called on the air conditioning and refrigeration industry to “completely break the supply chain to the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus,” and called on companies to stop investing in projects related to Russia and Belarus.

“The enemy army hits schools, kindergartens, businesses in various industries and only residential areas and houses.”

Mr Anashkin said refrigeration technology “is used in missiles to cool missile fuel, missile warheads, ships and military equipment to cool engines and crews, combat crews, military depots and arms factories”.

“Now ALL of our country, in EVERY of its colonies, is suffer losses both among people and among infrastructure,” the letter continues. “The enemy army strikes schools, kindergartens, businesses in various industries and only residential areas and homes. The occupants, in addition to firearms, use weapons – caliber cruise missiles, BUK missile systems, airplanes, helicopters and armored vehicles… cluster bombs, which are banned worldwide. Our people are burning alive in this hell! But WE FIGHT!”

Anashkin also asked if European companies could offer Ukraine a payment deferral for air conditioning and refrigeration equipment and components as the country tries to support commerce, hospitals and blood banks.

Anashkin wrote that European manufacturers can use “force majeure” in deals with Russia and Belarus. The legal concept of force majeure supports unforeseeable circumstances that prevent the execution of contracts. See the letter below:
