We managed to agree on deferrals on loans, agreed with partners, but held responsibility to our employees who needed help and finances in order to survive this difficult time,” said the functionary.
According to him, restarting all after the completion of the acute phase of restrictions, the company's business areas also required significant investments: “In order to restore all the old connections, you need to spend enormous efforts and funds. We have a lot of work to do to win back positions both in Russian jurisdiction and abroad.”
