The largest operator of the satellite communications market, RTCOMM (a subsidiary of PJSC Rostelecom), presented a new project “Changing people's lives” in the regional capital. The focus of the project is the fate and life of people living in hard-to-reach territories, who connected satellite Internet to achieve important life goals and achieved significant results along the way.

In the Khabarovsk Territory, there are most of such territories. In the taiga, tundra, mountains and on the coast, dozens of villages are scattered, almost cut off from the "mainland". The usual Internet, especially the fiber-optic one, is practically unknown to them - the distances are too great, it is too expensive to pull a line for a thousand kilometers. There is only one way out - a satellite. No wonder the main message of RTCOMM sounds like "the territory of the satellite Internet begins where the classic communication ends." Very often in such places the word "connection" is equal to the word "life".

Sergey Rataev, Director General of RTCOMM, flew to Khabarovsk to present the project "Changing People's Life".

“Our project is about people and for people. And we deliberately chose such a form of its presentation so as not to tell, but to show our clients' invented stories as confirmation of the positive role of satellite Internet in achieving important goals and results in the most inaccessible and remote territories of our country. " - said, speaking during the presentation to reporters, RTCOMM General Director Sergei Ratiev. “For example, satellite technologies, knowledge about which we are actively promoting, helped to save millions of rubles for the budget of a small village in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. And in the Kemerovo region, satellite Internet helps a professor, doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences, to search for dinosaurs of the Jurassic period. In the foothills of Altai, father and son built a successful eco-friendly business that is beneficial to people's health and satellite communication became the basis for the development of this family business. In the Tofalar taiga in the west of the Irkutsk region, our client-farmer is using space technologies to recreate the unique, largest in the world, deer breed, and his own nephew, living in the same impassable taiga area, managed to get to know a girl using the Internet and create a happy strong family. There are a lot of similar examples. The documentary film about Ekaterina Shmonina is a continuation of the exciting series, consisting of the happy client stories of RTCOMM, showing how effective the use of modern satellite solutions can be where there is no classic wire communication, but people live. We are sincerely glad that since the satellite Internet connection, the life and work of Ekaterina Konstantinovna has changed for the better, and her dreams and goals have received a reliable tool of infocommunication support. "

Literally everyone in the village of Tugur knows this woman. She is the founder and chairman of the Evenki tribal community. Ekaterina Konstantinovna herself told about herself, about how satellite Internet changed not only the life of her and her family, but the whole Tugur.

“We are Evenki. From time immemorial, we have led a nomadic lifestyle. Hence our main wealth - deer and our original culture. My grandfather bequeathed to me to preserve the traditions of our people and tell other people about them. This is what I have devoted my life to. The village of Tugur is located in a remote, almost inaccessible area of ​​the Khabarovsk Territory, on the shores of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. There are no roads. You can get to Khabarovsk only by helicopter, and this path can take a month or more with all transfers. You understand that there are also problems with communication. Until recently, we lived as if on a desert island. And so I found out about satellite Internet. A small "plate", a meter in diameter and a station the size of a small suitcase opened the way for me to a truly big world. I began to be nominated for presidential grants that allowed me to preserve the traditional and historical heritage of the Evenks of the Khabarovsk Territory, to establish contact with the Evenki communities of Tuva, Transbaikalia, Yakutia, the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in general, with places of compact residence of communities of my people throughout the country. And I and my loved ones, and all fellow villagers at first perceived it as a miracle. Three clicks of a button - and you talk to your fellow tribesmen in Sochi in your native language in real time. "

Ekaterina Shmonina developed a vigorous activity with the help of satellite Internet. She and her associates organize cross-cultural projects, participate in the work of the regional Association of Indigenous Minorities, publish in periodicals, work remotely with regional and municipal archives, prepare for the publication of the Tugur book, In Memory of Compatriots Who Left for the Great Patriotic War from their native village. In fact, the people of Tugur are integrating into the cultural and social life of the region.

However, not only cultural. Satellite Internet made it possible to significantly improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the village at a purely everyday level. Having remotely mastered the technology and contacted the specialists, the son of Ekaterina Konstantinovna built a bakery in Tugur. A quarter of a century before that, local Evenks baked bread on their own, as best they could. Now they have their own production.

One of the authors of the film, Valentina Oleksenko, noticed one more - perhaps the most important - change in the life of Tugur residents, which was given to them by a companion. There is a rallying of the villagers. The way of life and leisure will diversify, sports competitions among young people began to be held, children's theatrical performances appeared at school. Ekaterina Shmonina describes these changes as "a demanded good, albeit not a big one, but so important, especially for children and adolescents, expressed in specific deeds and projects."

The presentation of the project "Changing people's lives" in Khabarovsk was for informational, informational, not advertising purposes. After all, the heroes of the videos and the film are not hired actors, but current clients of RTCOMM. As an illustrative example, the participants of the meeting were offered to vote for one of the candidates for connection to satellite Internet from among three residents of the Khabarovsk Territory selected by the ambassador of the project Valentina Oleksenko. All of them live in hard-to-reach areas of the region, practically cut off from its inner life. Valery Kalugin became the winner. This guy is visually impaired and lives in the village of Chumikan. He is 18 years old, he dreams of making a living himself. But the problem is that there is no Internet connection with the outside world. A young man with a great will to live, energetic and purposeful, dreams of becoming a programmer. Now, with the help of satellite internet, he has a chance. His life will change.
