The best postman of Russia was a resident of Yakutia

The results of the annual Russian Post contest "Man of the Year" were announced on Russian Post Day. Afanasy Polyatinsky, the head of the post office of the Sangar village of the Kobyai ulus of Yakutia, received a high rank.

According to publications Il TumenOver the past year, Athanasius Polyansky walked 350 km along the taiga to deliver 97 kg of correspondence: letters and pensions to elderly residents of the ulus to ten remote villages of the district.

Had to walk in the spring. Runways at this time are not yet used, and the winter roads are already deteriorating. Local residents of remote villages, the farthest of which is located 350 km from the district center, do not risk walking on foot to neighboring settlements - just at that time hungry bears wake up. Afanasy Polyansky understood the risk, but considered that the correspondence should be delivered on time, otherwise people could suffer.
