Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine gives Myski a sports-recreation area

The company donated 1.3 million rubles to create the facility

The new complex in the center of the village of Tetenza boasts football and volleyball fields, a mini-stage for festive events, playgrounds, sports fields, park benches, and a hitching post – a vestige of the Shor culture.

The opening was attended by Myski head Yevgeny Timofeev, City Council members, and representatives of Kuzbass’ indigenous groups. “We treat the Shor people with great awe and respect, and we do everything possible to make it comfortable for people to live in their native land. I thank the Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine for the fact that it not only produces coal, but also helps develop the city. A year ago, in the village of Chuvashka, work began on building an ethnic village where you can get acquainted with the traditions and life of the Shor people. A sports complex was created in the village of Krasny Yar in 2018, and another in Tetenza this year. Next year, we’ll improve Borodino,” said Yevgeny Timofeev.

Creating the sports-recreation complex was one of the company’s initiatives in cooperation with the Mountain Shoria Development Foundation. Tetenza residents supported the initiative, chose the location, and took part in planning the project.

“We’re very happy with the result. It’s turned out to be a spacious, beautiful, and, most importantly, useful area. Children and adults can engage in sports activities here; families can gather here to relax. In addition, this is a great place for Shors to hold their traditional events” said Andrey Borshchevich, General Director of Open-Pit Mine Kiyzassky.

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine is actively involved in developing infrastructure in the Myskovsky Urban District. This year, School No. 3 and a center for creative development and humanitarian education were renovated there. Work continues on renovating the Yubileyny Palace of Culture and the Olymp sports complex for Kuzbass’ 300th anniversary.
