This year, the Russia – My History project involves a number of regions of the Russian Federation, namely, the Republics of Sakha (Yakutia), Dagestan and Tatarstan, the Tyumen, Nizhny Novgorod, Sakhalin, Samara, Omsk, Novosibirsk and Saratov Regions, the Primorye and Perm Territories, and St. Petersburg. Gazprom provided financial support to non-profit organizations empowered by the regional authorities to carry out the project. Thanks to the cooperation of the regional administration, the Foundation for Humanitarian Projects, and Gazprom, as well as the backing of the Presidential Executive Office, Makhachkala is now home to a museum complex that uses cutting-edge technologies of video infographics, animation, 3D modeling and digital reconstructions to make visitors feel like they are in a history textbook. The exhibition area is divided into four sections: “Rurikids,” “Romanovs,” “1917–1945. From Great Upheavals to the Great Victory,” and “Russia – My History. 1945–2016.” The museum’s concept includes regional content providing an insight into the history of the region and generated with the help of local history experts and leading researchers of Dagestan.

Khanakai Khanakaev, Deputy Director General of Gazprom Transgaz Makhachkala, greeted the guests of the historical park. “Gazprom Transgaz Makhachkala does everything it can to assist in the execution of cultural, social and charitable projects in the Republic of Dagestan. I would like to note that the goal of gas workers is not only to create comfort and deliver heat to homes, but also to shape the future for our children, teaching new generations to be creative and hard-working and to love, respect and learn the history and cultural traditions of Russia and Dagestan. Today, we are happy to congratulate all the residents of Dagestan on a wonderful event – the inauguration of a new interactive museum that covers more than 7,000 square meters and has no equivalent in the North Caucasus. I am sure that the museum will always be full of youngsters and college students, as each exhibition provides a tremendously interesting glimpse into the history of Russia and Dagestan,” he said.
