Kursk power engineers of IDGC of Centre took part in the meeting devoted to the 69th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk


August 23, the day of the 69th anniversary of the victorious conclusion of the Battle of Kursk, the staff of Kurskenergo, veterans of the Kursk power system, members of the Youth Council came to the memorial to the fallen in the Great Patriotic War, where they laid flowers at the eternal fire and honoured the memory of the participants of the great battle, turning the tide of the war, with a moment of silence.

Together with the residents of Kursk the power engineers came to the memorial to the fallen in the Great Patriotic War, where they laid flowers at the monument to the Hero of the Soviet Union Stepan Perekalsky. 322nd Infantry Division of the Voronezh Front under his command first entered the city of Kursk in February 1943 and completely released it. February 8, 1943, raising the fighters of the 1089th Infantry Regiment to attack, Stepan Perekalsky was mortally wounded. A native of the Tambov region was buried at the Kursk land which he heroically liberated. His name was given to the square and the street in the city of Kursk.

“The blood of known and unknown heroes, the blood of our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers in 1943 paid the peaceful sky over the Kursk land, freedom of Kursk residents, the future of children. We, the youth of Kurskenergo, try to hold as many as possible activities dedicated to the events of the war years and the heroic deeds of our ancestors. For us it is an opportunity to pay tribute to the heroes of the war. We are obliged with our affairs, actions and daily work to be worthy of the memory of great ancestors”, — stressed Chairman of the Youth Council of IDGC of Centre — Kurskenergo division Yury Piskun.

IDGC of Centre — Kurskenergo division pays tribute to veterans in the historical memorial campaign “Relay of Victory Banner”, which is held the third consecutive year in all distribution grid companies of IDGC Holding. Copies of the historical relic — the Victory Banner — were transferred to thirty Districts of Electrical Networks of Kurskenergo for storage in the museum and holding memorial events. Within the campaign Kursk power engineers visit museums, memorial sites of battles, monuments and memorials dedicated to the heroes and events of the Great Patriotic War.

In 2010, the creative team of the Kursk branch of IDGC of Centre prepared a literary and musical production of “Cranes”, dedicated to the memory of those who fell in 1941-1945. In March 2012, on the outcome of the regional festival of creative working youth “Youth of Russia” the creative project of the power engineers received high marks from the jury. Diplomas were awarded to authors and participants of the production and the branch as a whole was awarded a diploma “For the high level of amateur art, bright disclosure of the heroic and patriotic theme”.
