The Group treasures the Russian cultural and historical heritage, building its business on the long-standing national entrepreneurial traditions. It is an honour for us to contribute to facilitating the cultural revival of Russia and strengthening of public morals.

The Group regularly sponsors various social initiatives of the Belgorod and Stary Oskol Episcopate. In May 2011, a dedication service was held at the new St. Sergius of Radonezh Cathedral, built at the behest of Archbishop of Belgorod and Stary Oskol Ioann and Governor Evgeny Savchenko, with the support of EFKO's management. In addition to that, the Group renders active assistance to Yakovlev Non-Governmental Foundation for the Construction of the New Martyrs and Confessors Church of the Belgorod Region, to the Orthodox Organisation of the Svyato-Troitsk Cathedral, Alexeyevka Non-Governmental Foundation for the Reconstruction of the Svyato-Georgievsk Cathedral, and Svyato-Uspensk and Divnogorsk Monastery.

We also work to preserve and promote the Russian cultural and historical heritage in the regions where we operate, by actively supporting research of the Belgorod Region church history and the local Scythian culture. The Group supported an excavation project that resulted in the discovery of Sukhoy Yar, a unique underground church in the Belgorod Region. The Group also contributes to the cause of reviving the cultural heritage of the Cossack community of the Taman peninsula.
