I would like to congratulate you and all personnel of JSC Antipinsky Refinery on the Day of Oil and Gas Industry Workers!
This professional holiday has a particular importance in our country. The oil industry for Russia and its economy is one of the key developments, so the endeavor in this industry does impose specific commitments on the professionals such as not viewing the country’s natural-resource wealth as an eternal source of welfare but rather acting diligently and carefully with a greater accountability towards the society and the personnel, introducing state-of-the-art business models and technologies in keeping with the fast-paced time.
My sense is that such an insight is fully on board with you and your like-minded colleagues. The current situation experienced by the plant is difficult. Possibly, for pessimists the state of things may be viewed as a downfall, however the optimists may be seeing this challenge as a window of new possibilities for growth. The most important thing is that our team has been preserved, production renewed, the problems of the company are getting resolved by absolutely lawful means.
I wish you and your colleagues health, happiness, success in your work and leisure pursuit, welfare, high spirits, love and respect towards your friends and the loved ones.
President and Chairman of the Executive Board of Sberbank
