The State Duma adopted in I reading a bill on conferring the name of Tsiolkovsky to the city of Uglegorsk
In September 2015, the Legislative Assembly of the Amur Region decided to transform the village of Uglegorsk into a city. After that, regional legislators sent to the State Duma a bill with a request to give the newly-formed city the name of the great Russian Soviet scientist Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky.

The village of Uglegorsk was founded in 1961 and housed the families of the military missile division, which was in this place, reports Interfax.

After the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome began, it was decided that the staff of the cosmodrome would live in this settlement. After converting it into a city before 2018, it is planned to build a whole city for more than 25 thousand people. The modern population of the city almost completely (more than 84%) supported the renaming of it in Tsiolkovsky.

All costs of assigning the city a name Tsiolkovsky will be at the expense of the regional budget, for these purposes it is planned to spend 1,44 million rubles.

In the explanatory note to the bill it is noted that the rationale for the proposed name of the city is the desire to preserve the name of the scientist K. Tsiolkovsky in the memory of generations.

K. Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) he was an inventor in the field of aerodynamics, rocket dynamics, was the founder of modern cosmonautics and the theory of interplanetary communications, the first ideologist and theorist of human space exploration.
