Maceiras was visiting the University of A Coruña, Spain, where he signed an agreement on the hiring of researchers. At the subsequent press conference, he was asked about the group’s intentions in the face of the ongoing war.

“Our message remains unchanged,” he said. On March 5, Inditex informed the Spanish Securities Market Commission it was “temporarily suspending” its activity in Russia. The group operates over 500 stores in the country, where it also employs over 9,000 people. Due to the conflict, Inditex cannot “guarantee the continuity of its operations” in Russia.

Inditex is based in Arteixo, close to A Coruña, and owns among others brands like ZaraBershka
