Krasnaya Polyana holds charity concert for Sochi workers

Russian rock band "The Flowers" recently gave a charity concert at a 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics venue in honor of the workers who took part in constructing the facilities for the games.

The concert was organized by OJSC Krasnaya Polyana, the company building the Gornaya Karusel mountain ski resort that will host the Olympic and media villages.

Kraswnaya Polyana is controlled by Sberbank, the largest bank in Russia and Eastern Europe, which holds a 50.03 percent share in the company. The other major stakeholder is Mikhail Gutseriev, the president of Russneft, who holds 42 percent.

The charity event was attended by Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of Sberbank Stanislav Kuznetsov.

"Today's concert is an attempt to thank all of those who made enormous efforts and had personal courage to make a daily contribution to the construction of the Olympic facilities in Sochi. What is done with their hands here today I am sure will be a benefit to Russians for very long time," Kuznetsov said.
