Hello, I am Andrey. I am 33. I am a former Company Intelligence Special Forces soldier, an owner of a maroon beret. I used to serve in the army of Belarus. Now I live inm Kiev, Ukraine. Here I have a wife and three children. But I couldn’t miss this event, my military unit turned 70, and I went to Minsk for one day. This was my September, 7th, 2012.
In the train I was prepairing for upcoming football matches, I was planning players’ positions. I am a physical training teacher in a private school, by the way.
My friend and his daughter were glad to see me.

Amazing! No ads in the train!
My heart was beating while I was approaching to the military unit.
We played football here but more often we were punished by drill exercises.
With my old friend – universal soldier.

The former commander of the military unit. He is being told a lot of nasty things about. But I like him. He always remembered about soldiers and tried to make their service easier. I wished to resemble him.

You can’t leave Minsk empty-handed!
It’s pity I didn’t meet all my colleagues.
