The heart almost does not work, this does not work, this hurts, that hurts, a bunch of diseases. And the virus attacks the weak, who have no immunity, and he was more than 70 years old.
Andrei, Uladzimir Sidarau's son, decided to answer the authorities:
- Briefly about who my father was. - Andrei Sidarau, son of the deceased, writes. - Uladzimir Sidarau was born in Miory district, Vitsebsk region, on February 4, 1950. He was "more than 70 years old". His parents, a war veteran with a bullet wound to the chest, lived "more than 70," and my grandmother, also with the status of a war participant, lived longer. My father, having been trained in the Black Sea Higher Naval School after school, served in the Northern Fleet, was the commander of a ship with nuclear weapons on board. In the 90's he was demobilized to the Republic, Vitsebsk region, where he worked before retirement. After retirement, like most pensioners, he was engaged in gardening at his dacha, played chess well, brought up his grandchildren, loved cars, regularly went to the pool and was a sociable person. Until the end of his days he received congratulations and letters of thanks from hundreds of sailors, midshipmen, officers who served under his command, and their parents from all countries of the former USSR. Sincerely yours, son of the Father.
