The exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society in Vladikavkaz was attended by over seven thousand people. The exposition is located in the premises of the garrison House of Officers of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Vladikavkaz and will run until July 3.

Over the past six days, the exhibition was visited by servicemen of the formations and military units of the 58th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District, the Suvorovs of the North Caucasian SVU, cadets of the military training center at the North Ossetian State University, schoolchildren, and youth soldiers.

They had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with documents and artifacts about the contribution of representatives of the Russian Geographical Society to the study of the European part of Russia, the Urals, Siberia, the Far East, polar territories and other regions of our country, learn about outstanding researchers who have collected unique cartographic, geological and botanical collections.

Visitors were also attracted by the interactive elements of the presentation of historical material. A special place at the exhibition is occupied by the multimedia pavilion about the BK-31 armored boat, as well as artifacts from the First World War and the Great Patriotic War raised by the specialists of the Center for Underwater Research of the Russian Geographical Society from the bottom of the Gulf of Finland.

A separate section contains materials dedicated to the wives of Soviet military leaders who conducted major operations during the Great Patriotic War. The exhibition “Keeping the Family Warmth” was based on previously unseen photographs from family and personal archives, as well as a number of memories of the harsh years of the war and some little-known biographical materials.
