Ural Vagon Zavod Science Editor Gets Literary Prize

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 23, 2016. Science Editor of Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s head plant’s PR Department Sergei Ustyantsev was recently awarded the Fatherland’s Shield & Sword Prize, the company press service reports.

The awarding ceremony took place at the Pashkov House in Moscow. Ustyantsev was awarded for his Essays on the History of Russian 20th Century Industrial Culture.

‘The three-volume piece is dedicated to Ural Vagon Zavod, an enterprise with a unique industrial culture that works to create all kinds of produce: railcars, cryogenic equipment, and armored vehicles. The three volumes cover the plant’s history between the early twenties (when the plant was designed and put up) and the year 1950. There are more volumes to follow,’ the press service says.

‘We see preservation of the Tankprom heritage as one of this corporation’s most crucial social missions. Educational, publishing, and online projects on the history of tank-making industry are a priority. The final goal is to set up the Tankprom Museum by 2020, exactly one hundred years after the first Russian tank was made. We are grateful to the contest judges for appreciating Sergei Ustyantsev’s work,’ says Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s Deputy Director-General Alexei Zharich.
