Harry Theochari, Chairman of professional services’ body Maritime London and Senior Consultant with global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, has issued the following statement on behalf of the Board of Directors of Maritime London.

“Maritime London is hugely concerned at the current tragedy unfolding in Ukraine and urges an immediate ceasefire and an urgent resolution.

“Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people but also with seafarers on board vessels in the region – from Ukraine, Russia and other nations – that have been caught up in these terrible events and whose safety is jeopardised.

“Whilst this terrible situation continues, we are aware of the challenges regarding a rapidly changing sanctions environment and the lack of clarity for our members and their clients. We will work to bring such clarity to our members to ensure that shipping and trade remain as unaffected as possible.”
