On 11 July, together with Director General Enver Tskitishvili, I met with labour veterans of Azovstal Iron & Steel Works.

We discussed the issue of capital repairs of the building that houses the council of veterans of the Works. Over the next year the building will be renovated, its exterior part will be brought in line with modern refurbishment standards. We will plant new trees and flowers, and will make some improvements in the courtyard.

Our goal is to make it comfortable and pleasant for Azovstal labour veterans to stay in the building, since this is the centre of their community life. This is the place where they spend their time together, share problems and solve common tasks.

The repair work will begin in two weeks.
