IZHEVSK, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Bosses at the plant bearing Mikhail Kalashnikov's name plan to enshrine his memory in perpetuity there.
The late and legendary weapon designer's office will be preserved as he left it in his lifetime, management at the Izhevsk factory in Russia's western Urals have decided.
There are thoughts about a plaque on the premises, too, or what managers say may be an Alley of Honor. There are future proposals, also, for prizes to reward the firm's top workers and the best departments, says director general Mikhail Busygin.
The room where Kalashnikov developed his ideas "will be preserved for the young to remember," the chief says. "We will keep it intact by all means as a museum room," he adds.
Kalashnikov died in Izhevsk on Monday after a long illness. He was 94.
The funeral will be held in Izhevsk most likely on December 26, Viktor Chulkov, spokesman for the head of Udmurtia's administration, told Itar-Tass.
