As part of a meeting with cadets, Leonid Shumilov spoke about how, just a year after graduating from the Higher Engineering and Technical School of the Red Banner Navy, in 1958 he headed one of the construction sites in the city of Polyarny, linking his life for decades with the Northern Fleet …

The cadets were surprised that the track record of the structures erected under his leadership included a mooring front for basing submarines, an object of a missile attack warning system and many other strategically important sites that are currently in demand by the country’s army and navy.

The servicemen of the graduation course asked many questions about his activities as the first deputy chief of construction and quartering of the troops of the USSR Ministry of Defense. Answering questions, Leonid Veniaminovich stressed that the main direction of the service of that period was the creation of the space ground complex “Energia – Buran”.
