Note for Editors:

On the instructions of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rosneft built and fully equipped New Era School in Tulun (Irkutsk region), which suffered from a severe flood in 2019, in a record time of 300 days.

To fulfil the presidential instructions, more than a thousand builders worked daily at the construction site in difficult climatic conditions at low temperatures. The work was carried out almost around the clock.

The construction was supervised by the Angarsk Petrochemical Company, Rosneft’s largest oil refinery in Eastern Siberia.

The school got its name that symbolizes a new stage in the development of education in Tulun.
