Monument to Izhevsk gunsmiths
For obvious reasons, the new holiday gained popularity among the residents of the cities where the leading enterprises of the military-industrial complex are located: in Izhevsk, Votkinsk, Tula and others, where a number of important events are timed to coincide with this holiday.
Izhevsk will celebrate the holiday with the presentation of the new Kalashnikov concern, which will unite all the largest domestic enterprises involved in the production of small arms, writes AIF-Udmurtia. More than 200 high-ranking guests from Russia and from abroad were invited to the presentation.
Tula will meet Gunsmith's Day in commemoration of the developers of weapons, and a bust of legendary weapon designer Alexander Ganichev will be solemnly opened on the city’s Walk of Fame, reports Interfax.
We sincerely congratulate all Russian gunsmiths on their professional holiday, we wish them new achievements and success in their work, prosperity, peace and well-being in their families!
