Opening the monument, the Chairman of the NASB Presidium noted: "The opening of the monument in the run-up to the 31st Planetary Congress of the Association of Space Explorers, which will begin work in Minsk on September 10, is very significant. The choice of the venue for such an important forum is in international recognition of our country as a space power. The National Academy of Sciences is active in the field of space. Now the earth remote sensing spacecraft is flying, we are preparing to launch a new spacecraft. I want to wish our cosmonauts good health, we are proud of their success," Vladimir Gusakov said.
