They were remembered today by name.
The PMR President Vadim Krasnoselsky on behalf of the Pridnestrovian people laid a wreath at the monument to the Afghan Warrior and flowers at the foot of the monument to the Grieving Mother. The ceremony was attended by heads of state authorities and administration, clergymen, military personnel, social activists, participants in the hostilities in Afghanistan, family members of the dead soldiers-internationalists.
