“The war is not only at the front, it is not only the military, it is not only doctors, but there is also an information war, which is no less important for our common victory. The fact that today we are handing over protective equipment for our journalists is an important step forward “, – said Yuri Ryzhenkov, CEO of Metinvest.
Earlier, Silantiev handed over body armor from Metinvest to doctors, members of the territorial defense and employees of the State Emergency Service in Kyiv, as well as military doctors and soldiers of the State Emergency Service in the Zaporozhye region.
