“The solid and solidary friendship between our peoples is a response to an unprecedented emergency situation all over the world. While self-isolated, we can’t visit our relatives, meet up with friends, go sightseeing. We stopped travelling and business trips got reduced to zero. We understand why personal contacts should be restricted but, in our thoughts, aspirations and plans we are still as open as before. At the company's power plants, we take all necessary measures to protect the health of our personnel and contractors from the possibility of infection. Italy and Russia have always had very warm relations and during this period the two countries demonstrated an outstanding and sincere example of it. We are here to provide energy and support to our friendship.”

– Carlo Palasciano Villamagna, Enel Country Manager in Russia
