Statement on Ukraine & Russia

Mar 4, 2022

Our thoughts are with all the children and families suffering as a result of the war in Ukraine.

Our priority is the safety of all our colleagues. We are in contact with our Ukrainian team and are providing ongoing support to ensure their safety. We are also working to support other colleagues around the world impacted by the escalating crisis including our team in Russia.

We have paused shipments of products to Russia given the extensive disruption to the operating environment.

We care deeply about the lasting impact on children and together with the LEGO Foundation and Ole Kirk’s Fond, we will donate DKK 110 million (approx. USD 16.5 million) to emergency relief efforts, with a focus on providing support for children and families. The donation will be made to existing partners, including the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Save the Children, and the Danish Red Cross.

This is a volatile and constantly evolving situation which we are monitoring closely.

The LEGO Group’s mission is to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow through the power of play. The LEGO System in Play, with its foundation in LEGO bricks, allows children and fans to build and rebuild anything they can imagine.
A project that promotes creative activities and fun games for children, under the parent’s, family members or teacher’s guidance. This project has a special section for LEGO.
