#ARCTIC. #SIBERRIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Cars with food products left for Volochanka on December 16, according to the website of the Dudinka administration. Due to the fact that the route had to be laid off-road, the delivery took 17 days. On December 30, the convoy had about 35 kilometers to cover, but bad siberian weather intervened. As a resident of Volochanka, the director of the local school and a member of the Husky-Tyal family-clan community of indigenous small-numbered peoples Denis Terebikhin noted on his Facebook page, the inhabitants of the village themselves went to meet the guests.
“The last kilometers turned out to be very difficult, but the residents themselves got on snowmobiles, drove out to meet the lorries and managed to deliver food to their fellow villagers a few hours before the New Year. It was a truly heroic deed. The weather this year did everything to get in the way, and the people did everything to cope with it. Follow the example of the Volochanka residents”, said Denis Terebikhin.
The departure of 15 snowmobiles towards the food convoy was organized by businessman Victor Salomatov.
“The actions taken on December 31 made it possible to sell vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy products and other goods in the store. The rest of the provisions arrived in the village on January 2. The issue of providing food for Dudinka settlements’ residents is under the City of Dudinka municipal formation administration’s control”, the city authorities say.
May we remind, in December, Denis Terebikhin addressed the president of the country. A resident of Volochanka noted that the village was suffering from a lack of supplies.
