Head of the region Andrey Chibis has supported the idea proposed by famous traveler and explorer Fedor Konyukhov to launch a commemorative award marking the 125th anniversary of Sergey Witte expedition to the Kola Peninsula. This expedition laid the foundation for the Kola North and the Russian Arctic exploration and this commemorative award will allow to mark contribution of scientist, workers and industrialists to the development of the region.
Andrey Chibis noted that he is proud of people living and working in the Murmansk region and attaches a great importance to marking the remarkable progress they have been part of in terms of economic development, scientific research and security.
The very first award ceremony is to take place on August 11, 2019 when Fedor Konyukhov is to be back from his expedition to the North Pole aboard the 50 years if victory icebreaker.
