Sakhalin Energy handed “space present” to Vladimir Sangi

During 80-year anniversary the classic of Nivkh literature Vladimir Sangi received a space present from oil and gas company Sakhalin Energy. The writer was given a certificate confirming that ruby-coloured star of magnitude seven in Pisces constellation had been named Vladimir Sangi.

Corresponding record was made to International Catalogue of Celestial Bodies. The certificate was handed at the meeting of Round Table Preservation and Promotion of the Cultural and Linguistic Heritage of the Indigenous Peoples of the North of Sakhalin (Nivkhs) that took place in Paris under the aegis of Russian Federation UNESCO Committee.

Sakhalin Energy, Sakhalin government and Permanent Delegation of the Russian Federation to UNESCO were facilitating the event.

The present is very symbolic, star certificate does not have a time limit. Not only its owner, but his descendants will be proud of it.

Creative work of the founder of Nivkh literature is also not limited in time. Writer’s books are source of pride not only for people living in the north of Sakhalin, but for all who shares belief that extinction of even one language impoverishes all mankind.
