Miro, a US decacorn born in Russia, closes Russian office and commits €1 million for humanitarian support in Ukraine

In a strong symbol of the crash of Russia’s technology sector, Miro, a US-based decacorn created in Russia eleven years ago, announced last week it was closing its office and stopping sales in its native country.

“We are devastated by the escalating war and human tragedy in Ukraine. We continue to call for a swift end to the war and a return to peace and we condemn the ongoing acts of violence,” the company stated.

In the weeks preceding these tragic events, Miro had “worked through various plans to ensure that our employees, customers, and business would be supported and safe in the event of conflict in Ukraine – hoping that they would never have to be implemented.”
