Russia has presented the ITU based in Geneva with a bronze bust of the Russian physicist Alexander Popov
Russia has presented the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) based in Geneva with a bronze bust of the Russian physicist Alexander Popov, the inventor of wireless radio communication. Russia's present to the Geneva-based organization was timed to mark the 110th anniversary of Popov's invention of the first radio set and the 140th anniversary of the ITU. A Russian delegation presented the bust to ITU Secretary General Yoshio Utsumi during an official ceremony. The bust is made of solid bronze and weighs 55 kilograms. Utsumi said the bust of Popov would be placed near the bust of Guglielmo Marconi, who patented a radio receiver in 1897. "We have recently started working much more closely with the union, and I hope Russia will continue and build on the Soviet Union's achievements in this sphere," said Andrei Beskorovainy, the director of the Russian Federal Communications Agency. Beskorovainy is head of the Russian delegation to the ITU.
