Georgy Muru expressed confidence that it would be useful for Nakhimovites to learn about key milestones in the history of ship repair, and also that these books would be useful to them in their studies and preparation for technical competitions. “Without proper maintenance and repair, the most perfect ship may sooner or later lose its combat qualities. These books tell us that our Navy has developed a unique domestic school of ship repair. At all times, our ships have been serviced in accordance with the unique experience of ship repair. That is why the technical potential of the surface and submarine forces of the USSR Navy, and then the Russian Navy, has always been maintained and maintained at a high level, which allows us to solve any assigned tasks “- emphasized Georgy Muru during the ceremony of handing over a series of books to Vice Admiral Alexei Maksimchuk, head of the Nakhimov Naval School.

The first part “From Dock Admiralties to Marine Plants” covers the period from the inception of ship repair during the creation of a regular Navy in Russia to the formation of the Main Directorate of Ship Repair Yards (GUSRZ). The second book – “On the Rights of an Industrial Main Board” – is devoted to the history of the GUSRZ from 1954 to the present. The third book in the series is “Factories. People. Ships “- conceived as an illustrative collection of essays on the history of ship repair enterprises and design organizations that were part of the Navy at different times.

Without their work, outwardly imperceptible, the fleet could not have won so many victories! ” – noted Vice Admiral Alexey Maksimchuk
