In the Penza region, in the village of Nikolaevka, a solemn event of the action “From Russian pioneers to conquerors of space” took place. It was attended by servicemen of the branch of the Military Academy of Logistics (Penza), members of the Penza regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, residents of the settlement.

The guest of honor of the action was the Hero of Russia, pilot-cosmonaut, deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, honorary chairman of the Penza regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, Alexander Samokutyaev. On the site of the Mikhailovsky Redoubt – a wooden model of a Russian fort in Alaska being built here – a time capsule was solemnly laid.

Igor Pantyushov, Chairman of the Penza regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, conducted a sightseeing tour for all participants of the event on the redoubt. The cadets learned the history of the emergence of the Russian fortification in Alaska and the connection of fellow countryman Lavrenty Zagoskin with the redoubt, and also got acquainted with the technology of building a wooden fortress of the 19th century.

The letter to the future was placed in an airtight capsule and, to the solemn music of the academy’s orchestra, was walled up in a specially made concrete pedestal installed at the base of the Mikhailovsky redoubt.
