From the first days of the full-scale invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, Kusto Agro Agricultural Holding has been helping the Armed Forces, territorial defense units, local communities and the population.
As soon as the war broke out, the Company transferred USD 100,000 to the account of the Charity Foundation “Return Alive” to support the Armed Forces, and we also transferred UAH 300,000 to the Charity Foundation “Public Good”.
We allocated USD 10,000 as the aid to “SIS” LLC which manufactures bulletproof vests.
We provided necessary equipment, fuel and materials needed to create and arrange checkpoints and protective barriers in the localities where Kusto Agro units are present.
Kusto Agro provided about 3,500 liters of fuel in total for the needs of the Armed Forces and territorial defense units. The Company allocated 15 pieces of equipment from the Company’s own vehicle fleet and gave them directly to military formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and also allocated money to buy vehicles for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Kusto Agro engineering service specialists helped with repairs of military equipment.
Responding to the need for food for internally displaced persons and territorial defense units at the request of local communities, and for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Kusto Agro allocated money to buy food products and provided food grain for processing. We allocated about 900 kg of wheat from which Kusto Agro employees made flour and baked bread directly in our canteens for the needs of territorial defense units and the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Besides, 30 tons of various cereals were made with the use of Kusto Agro equipment for the needs of territorial defense units and the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
To help the affected regions in Ukraine, we received humanitarian aid from the Kusto Group company from Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan businessmen and representatives of the Charity Foundation “Pozitiv-Umit” actively joined Kusto Group’s charitable activities. These involved tons of goods, including food and baby food, medicines, including insulin, hygiene products, and 30 tents. The aid was handed over to the Interregional Coordination Humanitarian Headquarters in Vinnytsia and distributed to residents of the affected regions.
Responding to the request of the medical institution which faced an increased number of patients due to the growing stream of internally displaced persons, Kusto Agro transferred UAH 185,000 for the purchase of specialized equipment.
KUSTO AGRO Football Club plays charity matches to collect money which is further allocated for the needs of Vinnytsia football players who joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
We continue the struggle on the food front as well – the spring crops sowing campaign is almost completed.
It is known that the Company has assets in Zhytomyr Oblast where hostilities took place; fortunately, they did not affect the localities where Kusto Agro enterprises are located.
Therefore, spring field works are performed consistently with the pre-approved plan in all regions where the Company is present. Winter crops overwintered well and are in good condition.
Let’s work together for victory! Glory to Ukraine!
