Mogilev holds a dramatized meeting dedicated to Internationalist-soldier Day

February 15 Mogilev held a dramatized meeting dedicated to the 27th anniversary of withdrawal of the Soviet troops from Afghanistan. Representatives of the city and regional authorities, public organizations, labour collectives, internationalist-soldiers and relatives of the fallen soldiers and officers laid flowers to the memorial. 

Vladimir Tsumarev, chairman of Mogilev city executive committee, says that the events of the Afghan war are still urgent for historians, politicians, relatives and friends of those who died at that war.

The country prioritizes   diplomatic channels of settling conflicts.
