13 Mar Joint Press Statement of the Consul General of Ukraine in Frankfurt and the Gekko Group regarding the incident on March 11th
Frankfurt, 13th March 2023. The Frankfurt hospitality group led by Micky Rosen and Alex Urseanu is deeply saddened by the false reports about the incident that occurred at Roomers Frankfurt on 11th March 2023. Alex Urseanu meets with the Consul General of Ukraine Vadym Kostiuk in Frankfurt and issue a joint press release.
Together with the Consul General of Ukraine in Frankfurt, Vadym Kostiuk, we would like to comment on the incident that occurred in the night from 10.03. to 11.03.2023 at Roomers Frankfurt. A personal meeting between Vadym Kostiuk and Alex Urseanu, owner of Gekko Group, took place today, March 13, during which the facts of the incident were clarified. In summary, both sides clarify that this incident was in no way a politically motivated dispute. Rather, the incident was about a heavily intoxicated guest who was denied entry to the bar by the bouncer. Due to the guest’s intransigent and aggressive behavior, it came to a physical altercation between the guest and the security staff. The police and ambulance were called by hotel staff and both services arrived immediately afterwards. A short time later, the guest left the hotel on his own, without further outpatient care by the rescue service. All further investigations are being carried out by the relevant authorities, with whom we are cooperating closely. The hotel employee involved has been relieved of duty until the incident is fully investigated and clarified. Gekko Group strongly condemns any form of violence. The safety of our guests and our employees is always our highest priority. We take this matter very seriously and are shocked by the extent of the false reports regarding this incident, which have already been targeted against not only Roomers Frankfurt but the entire Gekko Group on social media and various internet channels.
