About the AEB

The Association of European Businesses represents and promotes the interests of European companies conducting business in and with the Russian Federation.

The AEB carries out activities to improve the Russian business and trade environment and to promote economic integration and partnership between the Russian Federation and the European Union.


AEB Opposes Additional Sanctions

Having been informed about the decision of the European Council to introduce new economic sanctions against Russia, the Association of European Businesses (AEB) reiterates its position against economic sanctions, or limitation of free trade or investment, and remains in favor of de-escalating political tensions on both sides.

AEB is still confident that Russia, despite the sanctions, remains and will continue to remain a strategic partner of European companies.

The Association calls on the heads of states and governments of the EU, the USA, Ukraine and Russia to define a new policy to put a stop to the conflict in Ukraine, leaving business aside from politics and finding a common, mutually acceptable solution in the spirit of peace and conciliation.
