Monument to Yuri Gagarin was thrown into a landfill on Sakhalin
The sculpture of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, which stood at the entrance to the city of Nevelsk on Sakhalin, was dismantled and thrown into a landfill. A gas station will be built on the site of the monument.
As the Sakhalin.Info, the administration of the Nevelsky district explained that the monument has been decommissioned and cannot be repaired or restored. In 2020, a public garden named after Gagarin with a new composition was opened in the district.
In 2021, Russia celebrated the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space. Yuri Gagarin was the first in the world to fly into space on April 12, 1961.
