Andrei Skoch’s Biography: Business and Charity

Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch, deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation – biography, date of birth.

Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch is a deputy of the State Duma. He was born in 1966 in Nikolskoye village in the Moscow region. Andrei Skoch is a psychologist by education, having been awarded a Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences after graduating from the Moscow State Open Pedagogical University.

In the nineties, Andrei Skoch was actively looking for niches for the development of his own business. He conducted business activities in several areas at once. He built several in cooperation with his business partner and friend Lev Kvetnoi. They started by selling various components for assembling computers. Skoch invested the proceeds in the development of another business, creating a chain from oil refining to the retail petrol’s sale at his own chain of gas stations. In 1995, he invested the money he earned in the investment company Interfin. The development of the investment fund progressed successfully, and closer to the end of the 1990s, Interfin’s portfolio included shares in large industrial organizations of the Belgorod region: the Oskol Electrometallurgical and Lebedinsky Mining and Processing Plants.


In 1999, Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch decided to devote himself to politics and gave a share in the company to his father, Vladimir Skoch. Andrei Skoch’s candidacy for the State Duma of the Russian Federation was supported by the majority of voters (54%). Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch has since been working as a deputy for 20 years. During this time, he authored almost 150 legislative initiatives. Among other things, the following laws were amended:

  • “On the monetary allowance of military personnel and the provision of separate payments to them”;
  • “About education in the Russian Federation”;
  • Part Two of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, which concerns the execution of environmental investment projects in the land areas of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation;
  • “On the conduct of gardening and gardening by citizens for their own needs and on Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation”;
  • “On the contract system in the field of procurement of goods, works, services for state and municipal needs.”

In 2000, Andrei Vladimirovich was the head of the Expert Council on Metallurgy and Mining Industry.


Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch has repeatedly been awarded honorary medals, orders, and badges for his legislative activity and charity. The list of his awards includes the Samara Cross badge, received by the politician in 2013; the UNESCO Five Continents Medal (2014); the Commendation of honor of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, issued to him in 2008 for his contribution to perpetuating the memory of the Soviet and Russian soldiers who died on Chinese territory; and the Order of Alexander Nevsky, received in 2015.


Deputy Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch has been engaged in charity work for many years. In 1996, the deputy founded the Healthy Generation (“Zdorovoye Pokolenie”) Foundation, which later became known as the Generation (“Pokolenie”) Foundation. At first, the organization provided assistance to children with heart diseases. However, later the field of activity of the fund became much wider. At the same time, medicine still remains the main focus. Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch’s Foundation pays medical organizations of the Belgorod region for the purchase of medicine and medical equipment. This includes not only wheelchairs and special beds but also mobile fluorographs, chromatographs, channel ultrasound diagnostic systems, as well as resuscitation and anesthesia monitors.

In 2001, 2010, and 2017, Andrei Skoch’s Foundation opened three centers: ophthalmological, medical, and neuro-orthopedic. 


Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch’s Foundation has many different projects related not only to medicine. In particular, it supports projects in the field of education. Every year a competition for the university students is held among the residents of Belgorod and the region called the “Best Student of the Year”, the winners receive a scholarship from the charity fund.

In February 2020, a solemn ceremony was held at the YCC of Belgorod  National Research University “BelSU”. 400 students competed for the opportunity to win prizes. Their candidacies were voted for on the website by SMS. The amount of scholarship money offered for those who took first place is 15,000 rubles, for those who took second place, 10,000 rubles. Since the beginning of the competition, about 3,000 people have become scholarship holders. In total, over 80 million rubles were paid out. 

The charity organization holds seminars twice a year for creative young people from the Belgorod region in the “New Generation” camp. There, the students are taught acting skills, the ability to perform in front of a wide audience, and other useful skills.

The Generation (Pokolenie) foundation provides great support to young talented artists. For many years, the “Debut” award was held, in which young writers took part. The award gave the laureates the opportunity not only to replicate their works abroad but also to conclude contracts with the foundation in the amount of one million rubles

The charity also supports programs for the renovation and restoration of military graves. Including the organization’s money, funds to restore 170 monuments to those who died during the Great Patriotic War were throughout the Belgorod region. At the same time, the Russian Necropolis in Belgorod was restored. 

Recently,  Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch’s Foundation spent 2.3 billion rubles on the construction of social facilities, reconstruction, and capital repair in 12 municipalities of the Belgorod region; the program will affect 75 objects. Work has already begun on some sections.

Andrei Skoch’s Foundation provides assistance to the socially vulnerable groups of the region’s population: more than 400,000 rubles are transferred monthly to 26 veteran councils and 11 social support organizations. In addition, the Generation Foundation provides transport for war veterans and the disabled.


The Generation Foundation, which was founded by the deputy Andrei Vladimirovich Skoch, supports not only long-term but also one-time projects. For example, the institution funded a program to teach English to children of Belgorod and the region. Also, 7 car stalls were purchased at the expense of the organization. They were sent to the Starooskolsky district, as well as to  Prokhorovsky and Shebekinsky districts. These car stalls are designed to provide essential goods to residents of hard-to-reach settlements.

The Foundation helped to open the Alexander Nevsky Martial Arts Sports Palace in Stary Oskol. It has an area of 5500 sq. there are facilities for boxing and wrestling, a gym, as well as offices for doctors and trainers. The stands in the main hall can accommodate up to 500 spectators, and the training area can accommodate up to 120 athletes.


During the quarantine and outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country, the fund provided necessary assistance to the hospitals and the clinics in the Belgorod region. In just a month and a half, the charity organization spent 60 million rubles to support social facilities. With its help, the doctors are delivered to calls, the patients are taken to the hospital, and the pregnant women are taken to the perinatal center.

The Generation Foundation sent several parts with personal protective equipment to the hospitals in Belgorod and the region. One of them included a set of 10,000 masks, 3,000 respirators, 7,500 goggles, and 1,000 overalls. The other part consisted of 50,000 masks, 7,500 pairs of gloves, and 1,000 pairs of protective overalls. At the same time, the staff of the regional infectious diseases clinical hospital accepted a package containing 40,000 medical masks and 1,000 protective suits. 

Help was provided not only to the doctors. The volunteers who worked with the elderly every day and provided them food and the medicines had received 7,500 gloves and 10,000 medical masks from the charity.
