Monument to internationalist warriors unveiled in Bykhov

The monument to internationalist warriors was unveiled in Bykhov today. The momentous event was timed to the 25th anniversary of withdrawing the Soviet troops from Afghanistan. The solemn ceremony was attended by the representatives of local administration, public organisations, and the warriors themselves.

"It took a year to create the memorial", chairman of the regional organisation of the Belarusian Afghan War Veterans Union Vladimir Vasilenko told. "The source of funding were the district budget and the proceeds from subbotniks (voluntary work on Saturdays) having been held.

According to Vladimir Vasilenko, it's not by chance that the memorial has been unveiled in Bykhov as far 7 natives of the district perished at Afghan war.
