The head of the post office from the Yakut village of Sangar Afanasy Polyatinsky became the "Person of the Year" of the Russian Post. In Moscow during a gala concert dedicated to the Russian Post Day, the main award of the company was presented to him by CEO Maxim Akimov.

Last spring, Afanasy Polyatinsky delivered mail to residents of ten remote villages, breaking a significant part of the road on foot. From Sangar to the nearest village of Kalvitsa, the first 30 km he walked across the river, knee-deep in the water. Where possible, he was brought in on tractors.

According to the press service of the Russian Post, ten days before the farthest village - Sayylyk, the postal route Afanasy Polyatinsky covered 350 km. At the same time, the winner of the award does not consider himself a hero. According to him, during the season of debauchery, emergency situations often arise in taiga regions of Russia, which can be dealt with only by such actions. Athanasius Polyatinsky noted that this is also the merit of the people who helped him.

“Person of the Year” is a corporate award of Russian Post JSC. It is awarded annually for the most significant achievements and deeds. A material incentive in the amount of 300 thousand rubles is attached to the honorary award.
