SCM Investment Group has signed a contract with DCI Group to support and promote the position of our State and Ukrainian business in preventing looting of Ukrainian property, minerals, grain, and steel by the Russian Federation.
The contract seeks to provide communications support in the United States against looting and resale of private and public property during the full-scale unprovoked invasion of Russia.
“Our goal is to make sure that Russia is proven guilty of its crimes against Ukraine and Ukrainians around the world. It has to pay in full. We will cooperate with DCI to expose the criminal actions of the aggressor country, develop and promote a policy that will stop the trade of steel, grain, and minerals stolen in Ukraine. We are ready to defend justice for as long as necessary,” stated Natalia Yemchenko, SCM's Director of Public Relations and Communications.
As previously reported, SCM founder and shareholder Rinat Akhmetov has filed a lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights against the Russian Federation to seek urgent relief for Russia’s blockading, looting, destruction, and diversion of grain and metals. For more information, click here.
