Sakhalin businessmen are ready to pay for the restoration of the monument to Yuri Gagarin. The search for a contractor who will restore the bas-relief is underway.

According to the press service of the Sakhalin Oblast government, Governor Valery Limarenko has sent a commission of the regional ministry of culture and archives and the town-planning center to Nevelsk. Experts will decide where the renovated monument will be located. The choice is between several locations in the center of Nevelsk, including opposite the Museum of History and Local Lore.

Limarenko noted that after a detailed examination it will become clear whether Gagarin's bas-relief is required to fully or partially restore and how long it will take.

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.
