Ms. Irvin brought the letter to Ambassador of Ukraine H.E. Valerii Chalyi from Mr. Clyde C. Tuggle, Senior Vice President of The Coca-Cola Company with apologies for that publication, as its content was prepared by an outside agency without Coca-Cola's knowledge or approval. The company immediately took down the social media post as soon as it became aware of the situation.
Ms. Irvin emphasized that Coca-Cola, as one of the large taxpayers in Ukraine, will continue actively working in the Ukrainian market, which is very important for the Company, as well as to be a reliable partner in implementing a number of social projects in our country.
