“Politically developed, ideologically stable.” The military published archival documents about Gagarin

The Day of Astronautics on the website of the Russian Defense Ministry published archival documents from the time of the officer’s service of Yuri Gagarin in the army. Among the documents there is a record-keeping map, a characterization from the Cosmonaut Training Center.
