In April 2021, a bronze bust of Yuri Gagarin will be installed at the Russian diplomatic mission in Turkmenistan. This event is timed to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of the human space flight.
The sculptor of this bronze composition is Alexei Leonov. The sculptural work is donated by the "Dialogue of Cultures - One World" International Public Foundation. For 10 years this organization has been realizing the project of installation of sculptures glorifying the feat of the first earthling in the earth orbit. The representative office of "Vozrozhdenie" Construction Company (Russia) undertook the architectural decoration and creation of the bust pedestal.
In the message of the Russian diplomatic mission it is emphasized that Turkmenistan honors Yuri Gagarin and his exploit. There are many streets in the country named after the first cosmonaut of the planet Earth.
As a reminder, we previously wrote about Yuri Gagarin's first "bodyguard" from Turkmenistan.
