WWII veteran Vasily Deikun, resident of Korovatichi in Rechitsa district, Gomel region, whose personal papers are held at the Local State Archives in Rechitsa, celebrated his 100 years on 20 January 2020.

In the Second World War Vasily Deikun fought as a tanker in the battles from Belarus to Czechoslovakia. He was twice wounded. He was awarded the Order of the Great Patriotic War, 2nd Class, medals “For Distinction in Combat”, “For Victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”, “For the Liberation of Prague” etc., and he was awarded the Commendation of Supreme Commander-in-Chief Joseph Stalin. After the war he served in Ukraine, then returned to Korovatichi and worked in the collective farm and in forestry.

Last year Vasily Deikun donated his personal papers to the Local State Archives in Rechitsa, among which are military and labour documents, award certificates and photographs that bear invaluable testimony of his outstanding life.

On the jubilee day the Archive’s director Natalya Pishchik and staff members Irina Komar and Sergey Zharnosenko visited the war veteran in his home in Korovatichi. They congratulated Vasily Deikun with his 100th anniversary, wished him good health, happiness and love, and presented him with gifts.
