About the importance of bringing peace to Donbas and Ukraine
Nothing can be more important than bringing peace to Donbas and Ukraine. Since the beginning of the conflict, Mr Akhmetov and all SCM businesses have done everything they could to help those who suffered. Mr Akhmetov has always sought to encourage a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Donbas. He has maintained an open dialogue with diplomats who have been working towards finding a resolution. SCM companies continue to play a key role as investors, employers and partners in investing in the communities and cooperating with local governments in the government-controlled Donbas. We believe in a whole and united Ukraine and when peace returns to Donbas Mr Akhmetov and SCM will definitely play their role in reintegration and recovery.
