The photo was taken in 2004 in Mukachevo, in front of a memorial to the victims of World War II. I'm the man on the right, and the man beside me is my deputy chairman. At that time I was the chairman of the Veterans' Club in Mukachevo. We, senior citizens, meet every month and discuss how we can improve the life of senior citizens in Mukachevo. The town opened a kitchen for seniors and also helps them financially. Around 18,000 seniors live in Mukachevo, of which 169 are veterans. Women go into retirement at the age of 55, and men at the age of 60.
