Message from Natalia Kovalenko

Dear friends, colleagues, partners!
Due to personal family reasons I will be stepping down in my full-time role as President of CSS’ operations in Russia as of 17 October 2022.
I am excited to announce that Olga Suslova has accepted the role of President for our Russian operations. Olga commences in the role with a great deal of knowledge about CSS, having managed our competition grant programs and the relationships with each of our beneficiaries. Olga has been with CSS since December, 2020 and possesses an incredible passion and drive for improving the lives of vulnerable Russian families and children. I am confident, CSS Russia remains in strong capable hands under Olga’s stewardship. Olga has also agreed to join the Russian Presidium of CSS in her capacity as President.
The good news for myself is that I will continue with CSS as a member of the Russian Presidium and will also take over responsibility for CSS’ operations outside of Russia. I would like to thank everyone who has supported and contributed to CSS’ growth in Russia and I look forward to being in contact with each of you through my new role.
