Day of Remembrance of Soldiers-Internationalists

February 15 in Belarus is the Day of Remembrance of Internationalist Soldiers

35 years have passed since the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan.
The war in Afghanistan affected thousands of Belarusian families.

Today in Minsk on the “Island of Tears” a requiem meeting was held dedicated to the Day of Remembrance of Internationalist Soldiers.
Representatives of government bodies and public organizations, internationalist warriors took part in it.
Students Minsk Radio Engineering College honored the memory of the victims and laid flowers at the monument.
