The message reads, in part:
“Exploration of the rich natural resources along the Sea of Okhotsk began in the 1920s. After the research expeditions, workers, construction workers, geologists and miners, military personnel and civil professionals landed in Nagayev Bay.
In defiance of harsh northern nature, they founded a new city, built residential buildings, schools, hospitals, a seaport, energy and transport infrastructure – literally from scratch.
Today Magadan is one of the economic, cultural, scientific and educational centres of Russia’s Far East. It is a city with a distinctive and strong character and a broad range of opportunities to build its investment appeal and to develop interregional and international connections.
It is important that this solid potential and unique geopolitical location serve the interests of the people in the Far East and that it work towards improving the quality of life.”
