Artur Chilingarov was one of the first to support the Norilsk people's initiative to award Norilsk the title of Labor Valor City.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. More than 48 000 people, not only Norilsk residents, but also residents of other cities, supported the awarding Norilsk with the title of Labor Valor City.

During the Great Patriotic War, Norilsk was engaged in supplying the army. At that time, metallurgical enterprises exceeded the norm of nickel supplies by several times, and by the end of the war they produced 60 percent of all Soviet Union ore. Extraction and processing of minerals in the Norilsk ore region was equated with soldiering at the front.

The enterprises that employ most of the Norilsk people continue to operate today.

Artur Chilingarov, the Polar Explorers Association president, is a member of the Russian organizing committee Pobeda and was one of the first to support the initiative to award Norilsk the title of Labor Valor City.

“I am sure that Norilsk and the Norilsk people are worthy of such an honorary title”, he said. “The city is the largest center of non-ferrous metallurgy in Russia. We should all understand that any civil initiatives reach the leadership of the country. I am glad that the desire to assign the title to Norilsk came from both residents and deputies”.

A petition for a final decision on conferring the honorary title was sent to the Russia president.

The Republic of Altai also supported the initiative of conferring the title to Norilsk.
