We are concerned for the well-being of the people in Ukraine, and we continue to keep them in our thoughts. Kubota North America, and its subsidiary Great Plains Manufacturing, cancelled production of equipment orders from Russia, and we are fully complying with domestic and international sanctions. We will continue to monitor events closely.
Since its founding in 1890, Kubota has been working to achieve solutions on social issues related to food, water, and the environment. We remain committed to confronting these increasingly serious social issues during this humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Kubota companies in Japan, Europe and North America, including Great Plains Manufacturing, are donating 100 million Japanese yen (about 850,000 U.S. dollars) to support Ukrainian families through relief organizations providing aid, shelter, food, water, blankets, medical supplies and protection from harm to those in need. Kubota employees have taken several initiatives to assist Ukraine, and we can only wish for a fast resolution to avoid further suffering. Kubota stands with those who stand for peace.
