Russian President Vladimir Putin has awarded three cities of the Far East the title of "City of Labor Valor." A total of 12 Russian territories have been added to the list of such cities. The list will be supplemented.

Vladimir Putin announced this at a meeting of the Victory organizing committee. Thus, the city of Okha in the Sakhalin Region, Aldan in Yakutia and the capital of Transbaikalia, Chita, will now bear honorary titles. Putin promised to sign a corresponding decree in the near future.

The President separately dwelt on the merits of the inhabitants of each of these settlements, saying that the inhabitants of Okha laid an oil pipeline to the mainland through the Tatar Strait.

“Okha gave the fighting homeland three million tons of black gold,” he said.

The President noted that evacuated specialists and scientists from different cities of the country were received in Chita.

“And already in August 1941, the Institute of Epidemiology, Microbiology and Hygiene was opened, and a year later the production of the most important drugs was launched,” the president recalled.

“The legendary city of Aldan is also famous for its labor records. On the Yakut land, a third of the all-Union gold mining and 80% of mica were provided, ”added the head of state.
