BRYANSK, February 14 (Itar-Tass) — Bryansk's oldest resident Semyon Galushko is 103.
The city's Mayor Sergei Smirnov and heads of districts arrived at his home to congratulate the veteran. They wished him health and good spirits.
Galushko was born in Mariupol on February 13, 1909. He remembers the revolution and the civil war. He received higher education and worked as a senior forester in Ukraine's Chernigov region for many decades. He is the author of several scientific works and practical forestry aids. During World War II, he assisted partisans.
In recent years he lived in Bryansk. He says the secret of his long life is in constant work and that he has no harmful habits. At the age of 85, he independently learned to play piano. Mayor Smirnov invited him to perform in a holiday concert on February 22 to mark Fatherland Defender Day.
