Transneft Far East, together with the government of Khabarovsk Territory, has constructed the memorial to veterans as part of the program of events for the Year of Memory and Glory.
The marble memorial complex has become the main element of the Victory Public Garden, landscaped in the territory of the Khabarovsk Care Home for Elderly and Disabled No. 1.
The public garden opening ceremony was attended by Evgeny Nikonov, Acting Vice Chairman of Khabarovsk Territory Government for Social Issues, Irina Zikunova, Chairman of the Legislative Duma of Khabarovsk Territory, Vitaly Stepanov, Director General of Transneft Far East, representatives of the regional council of war and labor veterans, and WWII veterans.
For construction of the memorial in the form of four stelae and a star, the symbol of the Red Army, Transneft Far East allocated RUB 775 thousand. Names of one hundred and eight veterans of the Great Patriotic War are immortalised in this memorial.
The initiative to found the Victory Public Garden belongs to Pavel Tyan, the participant of the Great Patriotic War and resident of the care home. He carried out many works for memorial complex landscaping with his own hands.
“We consider the participation of Transneft Far East in the events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War as the primary important task. It is our duty to past and future generations to keep in memory the feat of heroes,” Vitaly Stepanov noted at the memorial opening ceremony.
As Evgeny Nikonov, Acting Vice Chairman of Khabarovsk Territory Government for Social Issues, noted, the opening of this memorial is
an example of an important and useful form of interaction between the regional government and business.
In the year of the 75th anniversary of the Great Patriotic War, Transneft Far East implements charitable projects in all regions where the ESPO-2 route runs (Amur Region, Jewish Autonomous Region, Khabarovsk and Primorye Territories). In total, the company allocated more than RUB 3 million to finance events dedicated to the anniversary of the Great Victory.
The company's employees actively participate in volunteer actions. They repair memorials, assist veterans with redecorating their homes, support a children's search unit and provide targeted assistance to veterans with their own money.
