16 September, the "Vostochny" cosmodrome will open a monument to Tsiolkovsky

On Tuesday, 16 September, an opening ceremony of the monument to the founder of the Russian theoretical cosmonautics Konstantin Tsiolkovsky will be held at the Vostochny cosmodrome in the village of Uglegorsk, Interfax reports.

"The author of the monument to K. Tsiolkovsky is the St. Petersburg sculptor Professor Lev Beibutyan. The monument was created on the initiative and at the expense of the patron from St. Petersburg, reserve major Hrachya Poghosyan with the support of the leadership of the Federal Agency for Special Construction and ZATO Uglegorsk," the deputy chairman told Interfax-AVN of the Board of the National Association of Associations of Reserve Officers of the Armed Forces (MEGAPIR) reserve Colonel Yuri Klenov.

The installation site of Tsiolkovsky’s bust was not chosen by chance - a new microdistrict is being built near the Uglegorsk forces of the Federal Agency for Special Construction, in which the Vostochny space center personnel will live.
