In 2018 we celebrated two anniversaries simultaneously: the 25th anniversary of the LUKOIL Charity Foundation and the 20th anniversary of the LUKOIL Sports Club, thus attesting to the tradition of charitable initiatives at the Company. Thanks to support programs for local communities in the areas of education, health care, culture and sport, we make a signifcant contribution to raising living standards in the regions where we operate. We proactively develop social infrastructure, thereby facilitating improvements in the quality of health care and educational services, and also foster greater opportunities for children and young people, including individuals with development challenges.
