"Slavutich activity is closely connected with society and we always want to be a unity with everyone who surrounds us. We give a special attention to our so called "home regions" — the cities where our enterprises are located. The Zaporizhzhya region is important for our company; as the "Slavutich" was created here. I'm sure that Zaporizhzhya, a rich city in historical and cultural traditions in close interaction with Slavutich would improve social component of life of citizens who require not only protection of their legal rights but also need the reliable partners' support."
