Support for Russian Orthodox Church
Seeking to preserve spiritual and historical heritage, the Bank allocates funds for the needs of the Russian Orthodox Church on an annual basis. Vnesheconombank continued financing the construction of the Centre of Spiritual Development of Children and Youth at the Moscow Danilov Monastery, as well as restoration of a number of cathedrals, churches and monasteries.
Apart from this, the Bank continued rendering beneficent aid to the Russian Orthodox Church abroad. In 2013, funds were transferred to the Russian Orthodox Church Parish of Prepodobnyi Sergey Radonezhskiy in Johannesburg (Republic of South Africa) and the orthodox monastery in Hetzendorf (Germany).
