On 12th April, 1961, 27-year-old Yuri Alexeyevich Gagarin became the first human to venture into space. His one orbit flight made him the most famous man in the world. He was declared Columbus of the Cosmos. Gagarin received the Hero of the Soviet Union medal, was promoted to full Colonel and was appointed Deputy Head of the Star City cosmonaut centre. When Leonid Brezhnev deposed Khruschev, the new leaders were hostile to Gagarin. He died suddenly aged only 34. Was his death a tragic accident or did he have to die because he fought against the cruelties of the communist regime? President Vladimir Putin still prevents publishing the truth that would prove how Brezhnev and associates dealt with individuals who threatened to unmask their part in the tragedy of Gagarin’s death.
