“Lending support to various socially important projects is an integral part of Ukraine International Airlines corporate social responsibility policy. Historically, the carrier has been lending support to charitable, educational, cultural, and sports initiatives, – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Corporate Press Secretary. – We hope that the trip abroad and the experience of taking part in an international sports event will enable young people to gain self-confidence, to believe in themselves, to bring out their potential, as well as to meet a great many new friends from all over the world”.
