This is the contribution of the Federal Communications Agency in today's celebration and its gift to Omsk”, Oleg Dukhovnitsky said.

“Frankly, that's always nice to receive gifts! Omsk has a great three centuries-long history. This city was established as a stronghold to defend against nomadic incursions, over time it has become a beautiful, modern garden city, which is not only the cultural capital of Siberia, but also industrial, missile industry center of the country”, Victor Nazarov said.
