This was announced by Andrey Grachev, Vice President of Norilsk Nickel at the II International Exhibition, "Clean Country".
“I must say that we have already made serious progress within this program. In fact, 5 billion rubles were allocated under this program last year. We have deployed temporary residential complexes for future workers. In total, 5 500 people will be involved in the program, and we will create more than a thousand new jobs,” Grachev said.
