After the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army, things have taken a turn for the worse and everything has been thrown into a frenzy.
Reports of a full-fledged invasion of Ukraine by Russia surfaced after Russian president Vladimir Putin announced that the Russian Army will carry out a ‘military operation’ in Ukraine.
Videos and pictures of bombings, missiles, troops moving in and more have been circulating on the internet since morning and ground reports attest to the same.
Naturally, after such an invasion it is understood that the first priority of the citizens would be to ensure their own safety. Be that as it may, Ukrainian esports organisation – WePlay esports have released a statement regarding their current situation.
WePlay have their offices in Ukraine and will continue working remotely till the time a solution is found. The WePlay office in the United States will continue functioning as it has been.
In the statement WePlay esports stressed on the fact that they will do their best to fulfill the legal and financial obligations of the stakeholders while working remotely.
