Pernod Ricard to cease its operations in Russia

Article 12/05/2023

Pernod Ricard can confirm that it has stopped all exports of its international brands to Russia at the end of April 2023.
We will also cease the distribution of our portfolio in Russia, a process that we anticipate will take some months to complete.

We are assessing how to adapt our local organisation in light of these decisions, while fully complying with all local legal regulations.

Since the outbreak of the war our guiding principle has been the welfare of our teams wherever they are based, and we will continue to support our local employees during this process.
