KRASNOYARSK, August 17 (Itar-Tass) — Commemoration ceremonies are held in Khakassia this Friday to remember the victims of the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydro power plant disaster, which occurred three years ago.
Candles were lit in the settlement of Cheryomushki, where the 75 victims, plant workers, lived.
The ceremony began at the site of the 310th mark of the station, a source of the republic's government told Itar-Tass.
Archbishop Jonathan of Abakan and Khakassia led the short religious service near the chapel at the station.
A liturgy was held at the Uiskoye cemetery, where the victims are buried. A church was built there after the tragedy.
Khakassia's head Viktor Zimin and deputy chairman of the RusHydro company board Mikhail Mantrov participate in the ceremonies. Ex-Russian minister of emergencies and current Governor of the Moscow Region Sergei Shoigu is expected to arrive at Cheryomushki.
The disaster occurred at the Sayano-Sheshenskaya hydro power plant on August 17, 2009. It killed 75 workers and damaged all the ten power units. Repair work is continuing at the station. It is planned to be completed by 2014.
