We have created jobs and paid salaries and taxes to the budget and have done all we can for the city to grow and develop. Every day we give part of our soul in this process as we are truly concerned about the destiny of each resident of Khartsyzsk. Today, through this initiative by Khartsyzsk Pipe and Metinvest, we joined with residents to make our hometown clean and comfortable."
