“We have someone to take an example from”
Today, at the house number 47 on Lenin Avenue, a memorial plaque was opened to the Honored Builder of the RSFSR Ivan Moloshnikov. The rally dedicated to this event brought together the first persons of the city, former colleagues and the current management of OJSC Magnitostroy, friends-veterans and relatives of Ivan Stepanovich.
On this day, September 16, Ivan Stepanovich would have turned 93 years old. From 1973 to 1985 he was the manager of the Magnitostroy trust. Under his leadership, a large number of industrial and social facilities were erected and commissioned, including coke batteries No. 1, 2 and 3, hot rolling mill 2500, oxygen station No. 5 at MMK, steel cord workshop at Magnitogorsk calibration plant, city administration , 15 schools, including in neighboring rural areas. In addition, a circus and tens of thousands of square meters of housing.
But the most iconic object was the Palace of Culture of the MMK named after Sergo Ordzhonikidze, which is shown on the memorial plaque.
Sergey Berdnikov said that in the early years of his career, he worked under the leadership of Ivan Moloshnikov.
“Then the trust rattled throughout the country, and in Magnitogorsk itself in its significance it was almost equal to the city-forming enterprise,” the head of the city emphasized. - We must remember those people who brought so much positive to the city, they spoke little, but did a lot. And, probably, if we continued to live by such rules today, we would be able to live more and live better. We have someone to take an example from. Today we open this memorial plaque as a warning to the young so that such great people are remembered.
It is worth noting that Ivan Moloshnikov is a laureate of prizes of the Council of Ministers of the USSR, holder of the Order of the Badge of Honor, holder of two orders of the Red Banner of Labor, a veteran of Magnitostroy and an honorary citizen of Magnitogorsk.
“Ivan Moloshnikov paid great attention to the social issues of the trust,” said Dmitry Melnikov, director of the Magnitostroy Trust OJSC. - He took care of the life of the builders, when he created mobile dining rooms for workers. This sign, which we are opening today, says that Magnitogorsk is strong not only by metallurgists, but also by builders. ”
