NPPs, Bikes, and Priests

Frankly, I had no idea that the three could ever be rolled into one story until I saw “this press release”: from Rosatom…

_19.06.2008 // Public Information Center of Volgodonsk NPP/Press Service of Rosenergoatom Concern_

_Volgodonsk NPP-Zaporizhia NPP bike race is setting off on June 24_

*The organizer of the race is Volgodonsk Nuclear Power Plant. The objective of this event is to cultivate healthy lifestyle and to develop friendly relations among the satellite cities of nuclear power plants.* The first such race was conducted in 2004: from Volgodonsk NPP to Novovoronezh NPP, the second in 2007: from Volgodonsk NPP to Balakovo NPP.

*The Volgodonsk bike racers are not afraid of heat and rain. They overcome any obstacles with ease.* The captain of the team is the deputy director for personnel of Volgodonsk NPP Gennady Fomenko.

The managers of the plant and the families will come to big farewell to the racers. *The primate of Volgodonsk perish Father Sergiy will bless them.*

OK, maybe the translator shouldn’t have missed the typos or used the word “primate.” In any case, I hope you already know that priests and NPPs are tight. See the Rosatom photo below for proof.
