If I understood correctly, the first director of the plant was acquitted posthumously ... But in general, the article was very pleasing. Thanks! After all, not everything in our long-suffering Russia has been "privatized", something else is state-owned. Novikov is great! Apparently, this is a man of Soviet modesty. Such people should educate themselves successors during their lifetime, recommend them, although now "our" aligarhs cannot be opposed by any "Alligator". I would like to believe that no one will lay an "eye" on him.
