GERMAN DIPLOMATS TEND TO INTENSIFY THE CULTURAL COOPERATION WITH PERM The new consul general in Yekaterinburg may visit Perm already in March 2009. Renate Schimkoreit, the new FRG consul general in Yekaterinburg was appointed to Ural in the august, replacing Tilo Klinner at this position. Before the appointment to Russia she headed a department in the Foreign Ministry of Germany. Within the limits of visits through the consular district, which includes the Perm region as well, Schimkoreit has already visited Cheliabinsk and Ufa. Meanwhile Germans examine Prikamye from other viewpoints also. It turned out that right after scheduled replacement of the head of the German legation in Yekaterinburg, the whole Attaché office had been changed. Thus Steffen Laas started working under authority of Renate Schimkoreit in September and wills to stay at new post at least until 2010 (before he had the same job in the German embassy in Kirgizia). Last Friday Steffen Laas visited closing ceremony of Perm festival “Jazz-fever”, which the German consulate general was one of the sponsors of. According to Laas, he offered the German sponsorship to the fest organizers himself, because it emerged that the German cultural attaché is fond of jazz. He was the festival steering committee vice-chairman and even one of the founders of festival “Jazz Bishkek Spring” in Kirgizia. The future plans of cultural cooperation include also series of “round tables”, devoted to 60th anniversary of he German Constitution and 20th anniversary of the Germany unification, exhibitions, concerts, which mostly are to be held in Yekaterinburg, but as well the Germans “wanted to bring something” to Perm. Also, being in Perm, the German attaché opened the evening of German child and youth films “Young heroes” and an exhibition, devoted to history of Russian Germans. A banner exposition from “summit” of Germans of Prikamye, which took place in Krasnokamsk in the October, moved to cinema salon “Premiere”. But the Perm bureau of the Goethe-institute complained about the film program to the regional human rights plenipotentiary. The institute promised to present the incident details at a press conference in the nearest time.

The Perm region welcomes “Colruyt”, a producer of an instant food The negotiations about foundation of the instant food enterprise took place during the Perm region presentation in Brussels. According to Marat Bimatov, head of the Perm region Ministry of Commerce and Business Development, “Colruyt”company (Netherlands) offered to establish an instant food products network on the parity basis with the local investors. He said “The required investments volume is about 2 million Euro, the half of the project is con-financed. Plus the company is ready to provide support during the process of foundation. We agreed on that they would give us the required documentation within two weeks, and we will continue working with this documents within the local business society, interested in the project”. Besides that the European business has some ideas about implementation in Perm some projects in fields of logistics, production of office supplies, electric tools “Kinzo”, maintenance of oil equipment and even attraction of business-tourism to Perm.

The Perm region will expand variety of fertilizers, shipped to India

The Indian manufacturers of agricultural products are quite interested in urea based fertilizers, produced by JSC “Azot” and JSC “Mineral Fertilizers”. This is

an absolutely new project, because before only potassium fertilizers were shipped to India.

production of zirconium grain will be put in operation. The LLC “Ural plant of tools and materials” (UPTM) intends to provide at least a half of the regional rollers demand in stock for metal grinding. Zirconium alumina abrasive grain is used by steel-rolling and pipe plants for processing (grinding) of sheet metal. The designed annual output of the UPTM first stage should be approximately 1.3 thousand tons. The industrial scale production is supposed to be reached by the spring 2009. The enterprise will be constructed at the land of the former machine building plant “Zumus” in Severniy settlement, which is situated in Gubakhinskiy district of the Perm region. That’s the reason why the investments

volume is not quite large, and its most part is considered for the equipment purchase. The regional government says that currently in Russia volume of produced zirconium grain is no more than 8% of a required amount. The rest is imported from China, Germany and France. The UPTM is planning to provide

its product first of all for the Perm region market: its demand is about 2.5-3 thousand tons per year. The Sweden companies are also interested in the product. At the present time the plant owners discuss an issue of construction of the second stage with the same output. The first deputy of the

“UPTM” managing company director general explains: “Everything depends on our ability to meet the competition with European manufacturers at the home market and attract investments into new facilities production”. Zirconium alumina abrasive grain is an artificial abrasive material, mainly contained of crystallized alumina (aluminum oxide). It is produced by melt of the feedstock in arc furnace. The material is widely used in manufacturing of refractory materials and for metal grinding. Zirconium alumina abrasive grain, powders and flour grains, bound in synthetic bundle, are the basis for abrasive tools (grinding wheels, abrasive bricks, sandpaper and powders).

Garbage treatment allows to increase operation life of the DSG dump, because now only the garbage, left after sorting and transportation to the processing plants, is need to be buried. A new DSG dump, constructed by means of the regional and district budgets, is rented to the LLC “Bumatica” under condition that it’s going to build a garbage sorting complex here. As a result the enterprise invested 33 million rubles into the project, what gave another 30 work places. Initially the dump was considered as intermunicipal one, thus it’s designed to obtain garbage not only from the district settlements, but also the neighboring territories, for example Kirovskiy district of Perm city. The designed output of the garbage sorting plant is 30 thousand tons of domestic and industrial waste per year. This is the first such complex in Perm, which experience is now familiarized with by the other Prikamye districts.

Perm investment potential For the last 20 years Perm moved from a city closed to foreigners to a modern regional centre with a diversified economy. At present the economic and employment structure of the city has been adapted to these new circumstances and a market economy. There are several proofs of that. 34% of economically active population (approximately 170,000 people) having previous experi-ence working in large and medium-sized enterprises are now self-employed. The ratio between employees of large enterprises in the spheres of production and services has changed during the last 20 years. Today in services sector there are more people employed than in production sphere. The city’s unemployment level is quite low and it has shown a tendency for de-cline. The city has a huge potential and all development opportunities. Several positive factors exist: – high and unsatisfied domestic demand; – economic, financial, budgetary and social stability; – availability of all primary resources; – availability of the basic elements of transport infrastructure; – availability of such a transport artery as the river. There exists a potential of undeveloped and inefficiently used zones and, the last but not the least – an attractive urban landscape. Due to highly unsatisfied and diversified credit-worthy consumer demand Perm is among top five most attractive cities for investors. In this sphere construction volume will reach 1,520,000 sq.m. by 2020 (950,000 sq.m. up to 2011). The number of new workplaces will reach 28,000 and investment volume will make up 55 billion rubles. There have been defined 3 directions in territorial development: – development of built-up zones; – re-profiling, reorganisation of production zones; – integrated zonal development. 24 points of growth were identified to develop built-up zones with the real estate potential equal to over 6 million sq. m. Scheme of production and communal/storage zones location was defined. There were also identified 5 sites (total area – 13 million sq. m.) for realization of complex con-struction projects. The mission of the city consists in providing attractive conditions and a comfortable environment for current and future generations through sustainable economic growth and efficient territorial development.

O

ver 100 kilometers along the both banks of the Kama river, the greatest left feeder of Volga, is taken by the Perm city. Thus that kind of a city can’t survive without bridges, crossing not just small brooks and streams, but also binding both river banks. The very first bridge, built in Perm, was, no doubt, the one across Yegoshikha river. Today no one could probably tell exactly where it was and how it looked like. The dam of Motovilikhinskiy plant was constructed in 1723 and became the main transport link between Motovilikha and young Perm. Only in the beginning of XIX century the traffic through the dam was closed due to its dilapidation and a new bridge was constructed. After another 100 years, to be more precise in 1926, the wooden bridge was replaced with metallic one, which was more durable and thus provided safe path for trams, buses and cars, not numerous at that time. This bridge is still functioning but only for pedestrians, but the boy racers could look at it, being stuck in traffic jam at the Northern dam. Not all the old-times constructions have vanished through the centuries. For instance, two small bridges, built in 1804-1805 at behest of the governor Karl Moderakh, survived to this day. Well, one still can not see them, because they are buried

in the ground. These bridges were discovered by archeologists, carried out researches of territory around the Ural Railroad Administration, situated at 1 Gorkogo str. The bridges were a part of beatification system of Naberezhnaya str. Their sizes don’t really fascinate: the bridges are little over 2 meters in length and about 1.9 meters in width. Material, which the bridges were constructed of, is oversize brick, top of which was finished with stone facing. So, if the Perm administration finally allocates some money, it will be possible to make the bridges available for everyone, wishing to walk along the old Perm stones. It could be so that Mikhail Speranskiy, exiled to Perm, earl Pavel Stroganov, and Moderakh himself, and even maybe the emperor

Aleksandr the Blessed, visited our city in 1824, walked here. The first really great bridge of Perm is the railway bridge across Kama. Perm had railroad since 1878, but there was not a direct connection to the right bank, and only twenty years later construction of the bridge was started. The construction works were conducted by engineer Malyshevskiy. The bridge turned out to be 438.9 sazhens (936.5 meters) in length. All its frames were manufactured at Votkinskiy plant. The bridge contributed significantly in communication of central Russia with Siberia and Far East. Twice during the civil war the bridge happened to be in an epicenter of battles. Early in the morning of December 25th 1918, soldiers of an assault battalion, under

command of colonel Urbankovskiy, moved overice to the right bank and, taking the bridge security in rear, could prevent explosion of the bridge. However, soon the Whites had run out of luck, and leaving Perm in summer of 1919 they exploded one of the bridge spans. The bridge had been reconstructed during very rough time, but already by February 18th 1920 the traffic was opened again. He present bridge is an absolutely different one, because all the old frames were replaced due to metal fatigue, and just a small part of the old bridge is saved at the regional museum. The city continued to grow during the ХХ century. It had already districts at the right bank, so for the further development the city needed a road bridge. The Kamskaya

Hydropower station, constructed by 1954, functioned as a such bridge. Train and car traffic were opened through its dam, but the problem was not solved. For example, to get to Zakamsk one had to go through Gaiva, spending time and fuel in vain. At last, thanks to B.V. Konoplev, the head of the region executive committee, construction of the Municipal Bridge, which was to connect Popova and Speshilova streets, had begun. November 1st 1967 is the day, when the new bridge was opened for traffic. Many people may have already forgotten that there was even trams traffic along the bridge. It was no use, but still it wasn’t a mistake. At that time there were special guidelines, according to which, regional centers could build bridges only with strictly specified width, so the Perm region authorities cheated Moscow by including street railway to the bridge design. As a result the bridge obtained few meters, which are turned out to be very important nowadays. So the drivers should thank the smart Perm officials, which obviously forecasted car traffic increase, though they still probably could not imagine the present traffic problems. Today Perm has 4 big

road bridges (including dam of Kamskaya Hydropower Plant) and there are discussions about location of the fifth one; should it be in Motovilikha, somewhere near to Vosstaniya square, or in the city centre at Krisanova str. Well, there is no doubt that the city needs both bridges and as soon as possible, but unfortunately city can’t carry out both projects at the same time. Unlike Moscow and Rome, our city stands not at the seven hills, but at “the seven gullies”, which divide neighboring districts as firm as Kama separates the left bank from the right one. Bridges, dams and overpasses bind our city to the unified whole. Let’s hope that these binds will get more firm and prevent the city from choking with traffic jams.

Salad “Olivie”

advertisment

Description This salad is the creation of a French chef, M. Olivie, who in the 1860s opened a fashionable restaurant in Moscow called The Hermitage. The present-day version has veered quite far from the original, but Salad Olivie continues to be a favorite hors d’oeuvre and side dish for entrees. Ingredients • 1 whole chicken breast, poached, boned, and skinned, or 1/2 pound lean cooked veal. • 1 pound all-purpose potatoes, boiled in their skins and peeled. • 2 medium Cucumbers in Brine. • 1 cup cooked fresh or frozen peas. • 1 medium onion, finely chopped. • 1 cup Mayonnaise. • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and quartered. • 8 large black Greek olives. • 8 sprigs parsley. Method Serves 8-10 as an appetizer or 6 as an entree Cut the cooked chicken and potatoes into 1/2inch cubes. Peel the cucumbers and also cut into 1/2-inch cubes. In a large bowl, combine the meat, potatoes, cucumbers, green peas, and onion. Add the mayonnaise and mix gently, so those ingredients are not mashed. Refrigerate the salad until serving time (but for no longer than 4 hours). Variation: Vegetable Salad Olivie Omit the chicken or veal to make a delicious meatless side dish.

The forum program includes: 1. The selling exhibition of pictures. 2. Master classes on painting and graphic arts. 3. Alive discussions with painters. 4. Performances. The “Art-forum” will be the first project

of the “Platinum” exhibition hall. Union members, caricaturists of the “Pecar” club as well as independent painters and photographers will take part in it. According to the event organizers, the name of the exhibition has a symbolic meaning. First of all it’s a superb gift for the New Year, secondly it might remind visitors of eternal and beautiful things and make them recall that the most precious thing is the Russian soul but not the commercial side of life, the content and not the exterior. All in all, the exhibition is going to become the platinum decoration

of the Perm region cultural treasury. The forum way of the event organization was chosen on purpose. Forum implicates an open, informal meeting where everyone can talk to professionals in art and see the course of development and main creations of Perm art. The forum is organized by: Progress2000 LLC, “Andre” cultural and production centre (the director: Andrei Trusov, tel.: 293-81-49) and Designer Lekha-kha. The project will give a chance to people to come back to the time when the art wasn’t yet commercialized and beginning painters exposed their works on commonplace fairs

and not in specialized salons. On the opening day – the 10th of December - at 16:00 the presentation of a new salon “Platinum” is going to take place. Its visitors will participate in the unusual interactive performance and will be able to express openly their creative potential. The exhibition is open from 10 a.m. up to 8 p.m., seven days a week. At the first week after the opening (from the 10th up to the 17th of December) – the admission is free. We are looking forward to see you here.

Mikoulich “Painting by my heart”

S

ergei Alexandrovich Mikoulich is a rarely miscellaneous person. He has successfully realized himself as a painter, a teacher and a public man striving for consolidating contacts with foreign partners. He has devoted forty years of his life to the art, practicing graphic arts, sculpture and painting being fascinated most of all by easel painting. His anniversary exhibition represents more than 200 of his works in different styles and genres. One can feel that the author is an

excellent observer who reconstructs very thoughtfully human world and nature. In his landscapes he mostly concentrates on tranquil transient states. In portraits he aims at depicting outstanding personal features. With that his models are distinguished by their inartificial beauty and truth to nature. The painter has been always interested in Russian history. He addresses to it in various periods of his creation. Thus he wrote a wonderful composition “Ivan the Great” anticipating

the mess in Russian society. The picture is filled with grandeur and tragedy. The painter depicts scenes of folk life and folk stories as well (“Saltichikha”, “Emelya the Fool”). Landscapes have always been paid special attention in his works. Mikoulich is keen on Russian realistic landscapes of the Itinerants tradition. He is mostly a plainair painter like many artists of Russian realism. Every year he travels around Russia enjoying changing, elusive beauty of our quiet and marvelous

nature. In recent years he began to prefer panoramic works and large formats, vitalizing colors and making them the most expressive way of representation. The painter has been participating in art exhibitions in Perm region for a long time. He’s also famous in other regions of Russia and in foreign countries. The House of Painters. 27 Gorky Street.
