“He did a lot for the development of culture, sports, industry. He was truly a legendary person that will forever remain in our hearts,” Igor Rudensky said in his speech during the funeral ceremony at “Penza” cinema and concert hall for the former head of the region, who had passed away on Wednesday, June 22.
“He was a very active man, with immense projects that were brought to life here on Penza land. He was always full to the brim with ideas. He was a man who loved life, people, his family, his friends, regular people, loved arguing with them. You know, it probably was his very essence – the man was a true patriot of his land. A true patriot, because he could talk to people for hours because he really liked it,” the State Duma deputy noted.
Vasily Bochkarev always paid particular attention to agriculture, he recalled.
“He loved agriculture, he loved people who lived in villages. He loved working on new projects. As you know, there are a lot of projects in vegetable farming, milk and meat production and so on were implemented in the Penza land. Our region made a big step forward in this respect,” Igor Rudensky pointed out.
