MOSCOW, September 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Soviet cosmonaut Anatoly Berezovoy died on Saturday at the age of 72, the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said.
Berezovoy was the commander of the first resident crew at the Soviet Salyut-7 orbiting station in 1982.
On July 30 of the same year he and his colleague Valentin Lebedev made a spacewalk, staying in outer space for 2 hours and 33 minutes.
Their mission aboard the station was a record long one at that time - 211 days.
Berezovoy was “a member of a legendary generation of cosmonauts, a man of great will and courage, a top-class professional who did so much for the development of cosmonautics and major research projects”, Roscosmos Head Oleg Ostapenko said.
