Readdle’s statement regarding the situation in Ukraine

Maria Henyk, Readdle’s PR and marketing manager sent us the following statement:

At this time, Readdle’s primary focus is the safety and well-being of our team members and their families. In the weeks leading up to this act of aggression against Ukraine, we have been ensuring that our team members and operations were as well-prepared as possible. We developed plans to deal with various scenarios and we were ready to implement financial and other support for our team members at short notice.

Igor Zhadanov, Readdle’s founder and CEO:

All critical Readdle infrastructure is up and running and there will be no disruptions to anything customer facing as a result of the complex situation in Ukraine.

Readdle is a company with an extensive international footprint in more than eleven countries so this statement should assure people whose work and daily producitivty depend on Readdle software that the company’s apps will continue working uninterrupted even in the face of Russia’s aggression and invasion of Ukraine.

A few days ago, MacPaw, which is another Ukrainian developer of productivity software, also reached out to inform us that its apps will be unaffected by Russian aggression. Similar to MacPaw, Readdle won’t be affected because its servers and infrastructure ara safe. Readdle’s team members are fully equipped to work remotely.

They had been working from home throughout the pandemic and as such are well-equipped to deal with the current situation when it comes to the availability of Readdle’s products and services. For further information, visit the Readdle blog.
