“Agricultural producers in the region are supplied with mineral fertilisers free of charge due to efficient cooperation between Smolensk regional administration and Dorogobuzh’s management," said Alexey Ostrovsky, Molensk Regional Governor. "The company donates its fertilisers every year, saving farmers tens of millions of roubles."
