    Soviet Cosmonauts

    by hunterV Updated May 25, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is an exhibition at the local lore museum dedicated to the famous people of Luhansk region.

    Vladimir Lyakhov, our contemporary, is one of them. He was born on July 20, 1941 in the town of Antratsit Luhansk region in a worker’s family. He started to study after finishing his high school. He graduated from a military pilots’ school and became a military pilot. In 1967 he was enrolled into the cosmonauts’ team of the USSR.

    He flew into space three times and became twice Hero of the Soviet Union and a lieutenant general (a two-star general).

    In September 2008 he was invited to Luhansk and was awarded with the title of the “Honorary Citizen of Luhansk Region”.

    A town/city flag can be seen over the buildings of town and city councils next to the Ukrainian national flag.
    As you enter government establishments, you will also see the town/city coat-of-arms and hymn.
    Also, there are lots of old Soviet monuments dedicated to war and labor heroes.
