- Charity helps all representatives of the city community, from big business and industrial enterprises to volunteers and just caring residents of our city, to interact. The past year has shown how important it is for all of us to stick together. It is when we can support the weak, help the needy by our common effort. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated to us that our society is able to withstand any disaster when we feel support for each other and move in the same direction. But it is important not to forget that we have our hometown, which needs improvement and creation of the comfortable environment. We also have a unique pine forest, which we will continue to restore. And, which is most important, we have people for whom our help and support is vital. Togliatti is able and must get even better. Its every resident deserves it, noted the General Director of KuibyshevAzot PJSC Alexander Gerasimenko.
