In order to support the Maxima network, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development purchased the company's bonds worth 72 million euros.

In total, the EBRD plans an aid package worth 2 billion euros. These funds will be used to support the economy of Ukraine and other states affected by Russia's war against Ukraine.
