Accommodation wholesaler Stuba has become the latest travel company to pull out of Russia and Belarus.

It has removed a total of 1,062 hotels in both countries from its inventory.

Stuba will also no longer take bookings from any clients or companies based in Russia or Belarus.

The move will result in around $1m lost sales revenue for the bed bank.

Stuba has very close connections with Ukraine with a local team based in Kyiv.

It said it is in daily contact with the team, which has now evacuated Kyiv to ‘safer’ areas in the west. Stuba said it will remain in contact and provide additional support.

Stuba has also announced a contribution to the DEC ‘Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal’ which directly helps provide water, food, shelter and healthcare to Ukrainian refugees and displaced families.  

CCO Matt Stuart said: “Like the rest of the world, we have watched in horror at the human suffering the Ukrainian people are being subjected to daily because of the invasion by Russia. 

“There is not much we can do to influence these global size events, but we can stand by our principles and values and promote peace and security for all humans.

“Collectively if enough people and companies make a stand against aggressor nations, we can start to make a difference.”
