Double celebration for Norilsksnab

October 07, 2020

The combine’s head of the supply service Vladimir Vsesvyatsky was awarded the title of honorary citizen of Norilsk.

The supply service of the Norilsk Mining and Metallurgical Combine in 1975 turned three decades. From the first days Norilsksnab was famous for its large-scale personalities. Vladimir Vsesvyatsky, the future chief, arrived at the disposal of the Norilsk combine at the end of 1942 together with the evacuated residents of Monchegorsk.

The last entry in Vsesvyatsky’s employment record book was made on August 8, 1988, in the capital, where he headed the Moscow office of Norilsknab for 13 years. Vsesvyatsky was a General of supply in Norilsk, as journalists called him, for 17 years and even became the hero of the play called Seeing Off, which was staged not only in Norilsk, but also in the capital.

Vsesvyatsky received the sign and diploma during the anniversary celebrations in the Combine’s Palace of Culture from the hands of the mayor Yury Smolov

In 1975, Vladimir Vsesvyatsky was one of the first (together with Urvantsev, Vorontsov and Sheremetov) to be named an honorary citizen of Norilsk. Vsesvyatsky received the sign and diploma during the anniversary celebrations in the Combine’s Palace of Culture from the hands of the mayor Yury Smolov. The honorary citizen of Norilsk and the future honorary one of Dudinka considered the organization of year-round navigation as his main goal. For the contribution to that affair Vsesvyatsky was awarded the State Prize in 1981.
