In the current conflict in Ukraine – as Nexus is not a political player – Nexus only acts in a humanitarian perspective. Thus, Nexus supports the Ukrainian people in their right to defend their identity, human lives, vital assets, etc” the group said in a statement. “Consequently, Nexus has leveraged its community spirit with a huge sense of solidarity and commitment, through the relaunch of ‘Nexus United’ and with the operational contribution of Nexus Automotive Central Europe.

The group also said that it will also work with the other major ITGs, ‘to better support the Ukrainian people and to potentially consolidate financial aid.’.
