Sport is one of the Foundation’s strategic focus areas. Since 2012, we have been running charitable programmes to support ice hockey and chess. These programmes are providing children, including those with disabilities, greater access to sport.


"We believe that children should be able to play ice hockey or football in the street. The development of physical education has become one of Russias national priorities. And that is great! We are supporting childrens mass participation sports, because we are firmly convinced that we are contributing to the health and prosperity of the nation."

Gennady Timchenko
