“Metinvest Group continues to support the cities in which the company's enterprises operate, despite the difficult situation on the global markets and new challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. During this difficult period, those cities in which large socially responsible businesses operate were found to be more protected. Our employees are provided with jobs, we continue to pay wages smoothly and in full. In addition, it was decided to increase tax payments to the city budget. We are making every effort not only to stabilize the situation, but also to create conditions for the full-fledged socio-economic development of Krivoy Rog, ”said Dmitry Shevchik, General Director of the Central GOK.
