Before traditional celebration of the Miner’s Day (professional miners’ holiday which is widely celebrated in Russia) JSC “Russian Coal” gave 2,5 million rubles as a charity program for the honored retired miners of Khakassia region. During 1990-s when mining industry in Russia had difficult times miners pensions were rather small. Now coal mining companies try to do their best to provide veterans of this industry well-being and stable future. For the last few years retired miners of the region received 43 million rubles.
JSC “Russian Coal” has various charity and sponsorship programs in all regions where it operates. One of the most important aims of these programs is to maintain the living standards of vulnerable groups of people such as pensioners, labor veterans and the disabled.
