Norilsk hosted distinguished guests on its 35th anniversary

January 26, 2023

In September 1988, Mikhail Gorbachev, the first person of the state, visited Norilsk. The honored guest and his wife were met by the newly elected director of the Norilsk combine, Anatoly Filatov.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The USSR future president’s cortege stopped in Kayerkan, visited Nadezhda, visited the third supermarket, where a rich assortment was provided, talked with Norilsk residents on the site in front of the Karat store. Later, Gorbachev would call this trip a ‘headache’ and write in his working diary that in the city, which gives billion profits to the state, there is ‘a bad situation with public utilities and transport’.

On April 22, on the day of Lenin’s anniversary, the All-Union Seminar began in Norilsk to study the experience of NMMC and the City Committee of the Party in providing workers with services. More than 30 high-ranking officials came to learn from the experience of Norilsk residents in organizing consumer services: deputy ministers of non-ferrous metallurgy, consumer services, heavy engineering, deputy chairmen of the State Planning Commission, Gossnab, senior officials of the Central Committee of the CPSU, dozens of delegates from the union republics… Norilsk had never received such distinguished guests before, and even on such a ‘low’ issue as the life service organization.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told how in 1983 Norilsk shone on big screens and drawing boards.
