RYAH Celebrates and Supports Ukrainian Freedom Fighter Employee

·3-min read

TORONTO, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The RYAH Group Inc. leadership team is delighted to report that one of our lead developers, Maksym “Max” Rozdobudko (pictured below in an undisclosed location), is alive and well. RYAH continues to employ Max, with no change in terms, as he fights to preserve the freedom of his country.

Jordan Medley, Head of Product at RYAH, said “It had been 10 days since we last heard from Max, and of course, you can’t help worrying more and more about his safety with each day that passes. So when I received a message from him this week, and learned that he and his family are still safe, it brought about a personal sense of relief that’s almost impossible to describe. During his six years with RYAH, Max has been nothing short of exemplary in leading our front-end mobile app development, and his contributions have been essential to bringing our products to market. I continuously pray for his safety as he fights for his country.”

Sofiya Kleshchuk, Head of Client Relations at RYAH and a Ukrainian national living in New York, said “It is an unthinkable tragedy for all of our families and the whole nation. I am humbled by the commitment and dedication of Max and every Ukrainian defending Ukraine’s freedom today.”

Dr. Dave Richards and François Desrosiers, RYAH’s CEO and CFO, respectively, issued a joint statement saying “On behalf of RYAH’s Board and Leadership Team we wish to express our heartfelt appreciation and care for our Ukrainian colleagues, their friends and family, and the people of Ukraine. We strongly condemn Russia’s immoral military adventurism and war crimes.”
