The United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) has been recognized by the National Museum of History as an effective partner in the cultural sphere.

A diploma for many years of support of exhibition projects was presented to OMK Director of Government Relations and Corporate Social Responsibility Andrey Shikhanovich by National History Museum Director Alexey Levykin in person.

In 2017 and 2018, OMK acted as a financial partner for two significant exhibition projects by the National History Museum: “Energy of a Dream: Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of a Great Russian Revolution” and “Alexander II Liberator: 200th Birthday Celebration”. This year, the Company will sponsor a show entitled “Service and Valor: Celebrating 250 Years of the Order of St. George the Megalo-Martyr and the Victor”.

“Last year, OMK co-sponsored the show “Alexander II Liberator: 200th Birthday Celebration”. Company support helped procure a valuable exhibit: a letter signed by Alexander II. The assistance being received by our museum from OMK is very important. We hope to continue our collaboration”, noted Alexey Levykin.

“OMK is collaborating effectively with the National History Museum. Our long-standing partnership gave birth to two large-scale exhibition projects seen by tens of thousands of people. Soon, a collection will be shown having to do with the Order of St. George the Megalo-Martyr and the Victor. This show is close to our hearts. Dmitri D. Shepelev, a former owner of the Vyksa manufactories, was awarded the Order of St. George, Grade III, for being a hero in a battle with the French. We thank the National History Museum for the opportunity to be a part of preserving this country's cultural heritage”, noted Alexander Shikhanovich.
