(Reuters) - British cardboard maker DS Smith expects to book a one-off charge of 30 million pounds ($37.6 million) to account for losses from its Ukrainian business following Russia's invasion.

The FTSE 100 company on Thursday forecast annual adjusted operating profit of 605 million-615 million pounds, compared with 502 million pounds a year earlier, supported by higher sales and price hikes that helped offset rising costs.
