DCI Group is working for SCM Consulting to run a PA and media campaign to highlight Russia’s theft of grain, minerals and steel in Ukraine.

Rinat Akhmetov, Ukraine’s richest person and a former member of parliament, launched System Capital Management and serves as its president.

SCM’s properties include the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, which was overrun by Russian forces on May 20 following fierce resistance by Ukrainian soldiers.

Akhmetov has pledged to use his fortune to help rebuild Ukraine’s shattered economy.

DCI Group is helmed by Republican operatives Doug Goodyear, Justin Peterson and Brian McCabe.

SCM hired Qorvis Communications in May.
