Drvn, the global technology and chauffeur service company based in Coral Gables, Fla., recently announced it has ceased operations in Russia in support of, and in solidarity with, Ukraine. Hundreds of companies worldwide have either severely limited or withdrawn entirely from working with Russia, including GM, Expedia, and Apple, due to the ongoing invasion.

“We have been operating in Russia for nine years, focusing on corporate, executive, and leisure travel in St. Petersburg and Moscow,” said drvn CEO Mario Medina. “We are appalled by the attacks on Ukraine and deeply concerned about the safety of our chauffeurs, our clientele, and their families in the affected areas. As such, we stopped operations in Russia on February 25.”

As an added act of solidarity, drvn is donating a penny per mile for all drvn trips worldwide to a Ukrainian relief effort spearheaded by the National Bank of Ukraine. The relief effort provides funding to the country’s Armed Forces and the Ministry of Social Policy. To date, hundreds of millions have been raised to provide food and shelter for refugees and citizens, including clothing, shoes, medicine, staple goods for the population, financial aid, and more.
