“The Russian invasion of Ukraine is an unprecedented threat to peaceful coexistence in Europe. Messe Frankfurt supports all of the federal government’s sanctions. Against this background, the management of Messe Frankfurt decided today to suspend events of its subsidiary Messe Frankfurt RUS until further notice,” the organiser said in a statement.

This is not the first time that Messe Frankurt has cancelled events over the political situation in Ukraine. In 2014-2015 a show in Kiev was cancelled twice following Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
