This is a belated birthday post for Pyotr Klimuk, who celebrated his 70th on July 10. He made three flights in 1973, 1975 and 1978. From 1991 to 2003 he served as head of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre. He was the first Belarusian in space.

sovietico:

Pyotr Klimuk is a former soviet cosmonaut, awarded hero of the soviet union twice, three orders of Lenin and order for service to the homeland. Klimuk is a graduate of the Gagarin Air Force Academy and the Lenin Military Political Academy, and and the first Belarusian to perform space travel  after being selected to join the space program a year after entering the Soviet air force in 1964. He’s also my absolute FAVE because we share a birthday (10th July) making him the coolest space tripping cat.

I missed this. Happy belated birthday Pyotr!
