In Cherished Memory of Vladimir Sergeevich Vysotsky
ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. informs that Admiral Vladimir Sergeevich Vysotsky, the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy (in 2007–2012), the Deputy Director General of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co., the Chairman of the Board of Director of the Russia’s largest uranium mining enterprise: E.P. Slavsky Priargunsky Industrial Mining and Chemical Union, PJSC, died suddenly last night at the age of 67.
Vladimir was an example of impeccable service to the Motherland. His name is forever inscribed in the history of the Russian Navy and nuclear industry. He did a lot for the independence and prosperity of our Motherland, but even more left unfinished: his untimely demise interrupted what was started, did not allow his plans to come true.
Vladimir was born on August 18, 1954 in Komarno (Lvov Region, Ukrainian SSR). After graduating from the Leningrad Nakhimov Naval School and then from the Black Sea Nakhimov Higher Naval School, he served in the Pacific Fleet as the commander of an anti-submarine group and a mine torpedo unit onboard a large anti-submarine warship. Vladimir Sergeevich never stopped learning. In 1982, he graduated from the Higher Special Officer Classes of the Navy, and in 1999, graduated from the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with a gold medal. He held positions of responsibility, starting from an assistant commander of a heavy aircraft carrier to the Commander of the Northern Fleet. In 2007–2012, V.S. Vysotsky served as the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy. After 2013, Vladimir was the Deputy Director General of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co.
He always showed impeccable competence, expertise, professional wisdom, and a strategic approach to business in all his endeavors. He was one of the initiators of the Company’s structural reorganization, which allowed for building up a clear management hierarchy line.
Vladimir breathed new life into the Urtuisky opencast brown coal mine; under his supervision, the Company became one of the most profitable in the holding. Vladimir Vysotsky made a great contribution to the development of strategic facilities for the nuclear industry: he was largely involved into launching the construction of Mine No. 6 of E.P. Slavsky PIMCU, PJSC in the Trans-Baikal Territory. Today, the future of the domestic uranium mining industry, the social and economic welfare of Krasnokamensk, the uranium capital of Russia, are closely related to this facility being built for the development of the Argunskoye and Zherlovoye fields.
An outstanding man, Vladimir Sergeevich will remain in the memory of generations as a creator and patriot of his Motherland, who was faithful to his duty and the chosen path.
For his high achievements, Vladimir Vysotsky got numerous awards, including the Order of Merit for Country of the VI Degree, the Order for Military Merits, the Order for Service to the Motherland in the Armed Forces of the USSR of the III Degree, the Russian Orthodox Church’s Order of the Saint Blessed Grand Duke Dmitry Donskoy of the III Degree, and many others. ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation awarded him the Insignia for Contribution to the Development of the Nuclear Industry.
The team of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. will forever cherish the memory of Vladimir Sergeevich. We are thankful for his work and proud to have the honor to work with him. We express our deepest condolences to the family, relatives, colleagues, and friends of Vladimir Vysotsky.
