Foreign students of Mariupol State University visited the Ilyich Iron and Steel Works
Foreign students of the preparatory department of Mariupol State University visited Illyich Iron and Steel Works, a large city-building enterprise, in order to familiarize themselves with Mariupol.
When visiting the works, foreign students from Cameroon, Guinea and the People's Republic of Bangladesh learned its history, which is closely related to the history of Mariupol, and saw the process of manufacturing metallurgical products.
After visiting the shop, foreign guests were invited to the Museum of History of the Ilyich works, which was significantly renovated last year which was the 120th anniversary of the works. An excursion to the museum was given by its director Irina Badasen.
The boys and girls saw work clothes of the first Mariupol steelmakers, old drawings and photographs, the first typewriters used by factory workers, weapons and miniatures of combat vehicles of the Second World War, which were made from steel of the Ilyich Iron and Steel Works. A separate exposition was dedicated to the memory of the Director of Illyich Iron and Steel Works, Hero of Ukraine Volodymyr Boyko.
Foreign students visited all 14 exhibition halls of the museum and remained extremely impressed by what they saw. At the end of the tour, they thanked Gennady Vovchenko and Irina Badasen for the opportunity to get to know Mariupol more closely.
