The mountain range in southern part of East Ridge was named in memory of the pilot V. P. Samarsky. The helicopter crew commander, V. P. Samarsky dedicated his life to the establishment and development of local aviation. In the course of sanitary and rescue flights he saved lives of more than 300 persons.
