Hapag-Lloyd’s remaining Ukrainian staff are safe and well, according to an executive who fled the country in February.

Oleksandr Dobrovolskyi, manager of business administration at the German container line’s office in Odessa, made it across the border at the last second and was able to bring his family to safety.

“When the war started I grabbed my wife and children and fled across the border, just before the announcement that all men between the ages of 16 and 60 must stay according to the martial law act declared by our government and president the next day,” he said.
