August 24 marks 102 years since Main Administration for Service to the Diplomatic Corps (GlavUpDK) under the MFA of Russia was founded. On that day in 1921, Council of Labor and Defense issued an order “On the Establishment of the Central Bureau for the Service of Foreigners under the People's Commissariat” abbreviated Burobin (predecessor of GlavUpDK).
The Bureau was providing diplomatic missions in countries accredited by Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic with accommodation, furniture, equipment, and food. As international relations developed, more diplomatic missions appeared in Moscow, and the range of the Bureau’s services scaled to match them.
Today, GlavUpDK offers everything for efficient work and comfortable life in Moscow including a comprehensive approach to house and office rent, high-quality medical care, individual business solutions: HR, accounting, legal support and consulting, organization of business events and countryside vacations, transport services.
GlavUpDK is a reliable landlord boasting over 1 million sq.m. of residential and commercial properties, including about 7,000 apartments in prestigious areas of Moscow and five multi-purpose complexes: Park Place Moscow, Dobrynya, Pyat Prudov, Donskoy Posad and recently completed Mosfilmovskaya 42.
Throughout its history, the Enterprise has always strove to introduce foreigners to the diversity and richness of Russian culture. To this end, we run various cultural events to facilitate effective unofficial communications between diplomats.
GlavUpDK does its best to bring positive change to society. The Enterprise manages over 130 Moscow mansions, cultural heritages sites, carefully preserving their original appearance. The International Charity Golf Tournament, held annually for over two decades now at Moscow Country Club, Russia’s first professional golf course, has helped hundreds of children in need.
Clients and partners, who have been doing business with the Enterprise for years, rightfully appreciate GlavUpDK’s efforts. Staff of GlavUpDK have repeatedly received commendations and awards from Moscow Mayor who praised their contribution to preserving cultural heritage, as well as treasured awards from the State for their contributions to developing international relations of the Russian Federation.
