During the 20th annual meeting of “ALROSA” it was a question, in which there were concerned that the company’s costs to sponsor hockey team of Russia may lead to the increase in the cost of services in sports facilities, therefore, affect the welfare of Mirny citizens.
“Mirny citizens pay about 10-15% for services in the cultural and sports complex, the rest of the cost is subsidized by the company. “ALROSA” will continue this policy, so the sponsoring the hockey team will not affect the welfare of Mirny citizens”, – said the president of the company Andrey Zharkov.
He also explained that the Russian government has always helped and helps the company “ALROSA”, including in very difficult situations, such as during the last crisis. So when the government asked the company to assist the hockey team, the administration did not deny.
“The national ice hockey team – the heritage and pride of Russia, as well as the company “ALROSA”, – said Andrey Zharkov.
During presentations at the meeting, it was reported that the company fulfilled its social obligation and did not intend to abandon them in the future.
