Workers of the Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company (an enterprise of the UMMC raw materials complex) planted almost 400 rowan trees in the village of Starochervovo, Kemerovo Municipal District. The “green” action, in which local residents also took part, was dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War and timed to coincide with the All-Russian Day of Forest Planting.
