Group of Companies “Russian investments” adheres to the principle of full independence in decision-making on charitable activity. We proceed from the fact that assistance to organizations or people should not be a subject of advertising and should not be a matter of advice from third parties.
On more than one occasion we have participated in assistance projects, and we believe that such participation is our important social mission.
