Touring with a new bus

On December 11, 2019 Nikolay Gorban, CPC General Director, and Batu Khasikov, Head of the Republic of Kalmykia, took part in the ceremony of tour bus handover to the team of Basangov National Drame theater.
A comfortable bus Higer 6128 was purchased with charity funds of Caspian Pipeline Consortium. CPC allocated 10.3 Million rubles for these purposes.
The bus is designed for 51 passengers, has a windshield defroster and tinted passenger compartment windows, an autonomous heating system and an air conditioning system. The passenger compartment is equipped with two LCD monitors, a fridge, a cooler and a lavatory, and has a special sleeping place for the driver.
Higer 6128 Security System includes emergency buttons ERA-GLONASS, a digital tachometer with a cryptosecurity device, a rear-view camera and a back passenger door, an indicator of luggage compartment opening.
“Basangov National Drama Theater is one of the oldest performance teams of Kalmykia and is a most important center for creation and development of professional art, national drama and folk traditions. The performance team travels extensively, taking part in Russian and international festivals, and purchase of the bus will become, without doubt, a serious motivation for further creative development of the theater”, noted Batu Khasikov, Head of the Republic of Kalmykia. 
As noted during the bus handover ceremony, the new vehicle is sufficiently spacious to provide transportation not only for actors, but also for technical personnel, as well as theatricals, costumes and accessories.
