Udmurtia and UdSU celebrate Kalashnikov’s birthday!

The Udmurt State University has always been on the forefront of keeping and disseminating historical knowledge and legacy. To prove it further, on November 11 an online tour “I am a gunmaker” took place at the Kalashnikov’s museum to celebrate the 102nd birthday of the great Russian engineer Mikhail Kalashnikov. It was made possible by the joint efforts of the Udmurt State University and the museum staff.

Guests from such countries as Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kirgizia, China, Mongolia, Serbia, Czech Republic, Syria, and Lebanon attended the event. They could virtually visit the Kalashnikov’s museum in Izhevsk – a place where some of the most innovative guns were designed including AK-47, Dragunov sniper rifle, Nikonov assault rifle; meet the Honored Inventor of the RF Vladimir Yarygin and a third-generation gunmaker Mikhail Dragunov.

Among other things, the guests had the opportunity to check their knowledge of Russian military history by answering the questions of online quiz. At the end of the event some more historical facts were presented in the documentary about great Russian gunmakers who lived and worked in our city.
