AbstractSome pecularities of the circummucleus of the Seyfert galaxy NGC 7469 were revealed, plausibly caused by interaction with the satellite IC 5283 and a starlike detail, situated on the edge of the west spiral branch 14" from the nucleus. Shock excited HII regions were noted in the part of NGC 7469 turned toward the satellite IC 5283. The galaxy's central radio structure (λ ~ 6 cm) stretches in the direction toward the satellite IC 5283 and the starlike detail. The spectum and color index
