Voronezh Welcomes Its Millionth Citizen

The Lopyryovs family from the Russian city of Voronezh were thrilled to welcome their first son, Yegor, who is the fourth child and will be well cared after by his three elder sisters. 

      But little did they know that Yegor would also be the millionth citizen of Voronezh, officially introducing the city to the ranks of cities with over one million inhabitants. 

      Voronezh government  promptly rewarded the lucky family. The city's mayor came to present the happy mother with a special medal and a certificate to buy a property of choice: either a spacious country house or a new apartment in the city. The family of 5 currently live in a two-bedroom flat. 

      The importance of this event cannot be underestimated: Voronezh government will now be able to revise several projects in the Utilities, Education and Transport spheres.
