Military Review

Who needs an eternal flame in Sevastopol?

39



Sunday, 21 January. Monument to the Soldier and Sailor, Hero City Sevastopol.

Holidays are over, weekdays look more than modest.

On the square near the monument, from where, on military holidays, Sevastopol residents and guests of the city watch parades of ships, and then salutes, let's say, not lively.

A girl with a bewildered face is riding an electric scooter, a company of young guys about fifteen crosses the square towards the sea, listening to a Russian Russian rap from a mobile column, two girls are sitting on a bench painting a cigarette in their lips, a five-year-old boy with a dad of not burning Eternal flame with a magnet on The thread is trying to pull the coins ...



It’s more difficult to understand why children skew and listen to fashionable consumerism, what the benefits of buying an electric scooter and a hoverboard are, but why the Eternal Flame doesn’t burn in the city of heroes is IMPOSSIBLE!

No one needs to explain the significance of the memorial symbol in the form of the Eternal Flame in the post-war years. Fire as an element revered by man since ancient times. But the Eternal Flame, reminiscent of the heroism of Soviet citizens who have passed through the flames of a terrible war and defeated fascism, is more important for us, the descendants of the victorious heroes, spiritual and moral.

If the fire is lit, then it is vital and instructively important. How many of us fathers led to the Eternal Flame to talk about the Great Patriotic War? How many of us stood guard of honor at the Eternal Lights in their cities? How many of us are fascinated looking at the changing of the guard at the post number XXUMX? How many of us led to the eternal fires of our sons? This is called "Continuity", this is called "Memory."

Now is January, and exactly 76 years ago, in the second defense of Sevastopol, January was the month of victories. Then the troops of the Sevastopol defense region with the support of the ships of the Black Sea fleet drove back the Nazis, returning the frontiers lost before. January in the defense of the city is the month when Manstein’s generals were discouraged by the resistance of Soviet soldiers, who were furiously not giving up the city. January 1942 has no right to be forgotten; these days defenders from all over the USSR died for Sevastopol.

What can we do for those who defended Sevastopol against the common sense in those difficult days of defense?

Do not extinguish eternal lights. At least.

          In fact, the eternal flame at the 1941-1942 Memorial of Heroic Defense, which has post number 1, always burns. In addition, an eternal flame burns on Sapun Mountain at the obelisk of the Primorsky Army. They announced that they would light the fire again after restoration on the Malakhov Hill.

          And what am I to apologize for? Those in power will justify this precisely by saving / caring for the budget, etc. etc. At the same time, they will buy a couple of coffee machines, leather chairs or cars (it all depends on the level of the budget being cut) Well, and premiums, to your beloved ones. And, to those who work- ... to you, and not ...- In short, you didn’t work for it either. And under the USSR, the Eternal Fire burned at all memorials around the clock and all year round, I remember my northern city in those years.

      My friends, this fire has never worked, in any case, I have not seen. A gas distribution substation was built not far there, but it was still with the Ukrainians.

    Two questions:
    1. How is gas supplied to a particular memorial? network or in cylinders?
    2. Is there anyone here who cares about Sevastopol? You can not only scratch your tongue (with your fingers in our case), but also engage in official correspondence with the authorities, try to do something yourself ...

      Several burned and now they burn at least two - on Malakhov they must light up again after restoration. And this sparked light was only in 2007 and it never burned for a long time - in any case, this place is very little visited. The information that something is visible from there in the note is completely invisible - the parade always takes place elsewhere.

        I served urgently in Sevastopol, I was lucky to take part in lighting a fire on the Malakhov Kurgan, after repair, it seems. The holiday was with reenactors and other paraphernalia, then the Ukrainians and I held all the events together and walked shoulder to shoulder at all the parades, it was good ... The fire was burning.

    In principle, I support the author, but I do not dramatize the situation too. In our city, and so on, there are two constantly operating Eternal Flames: on Nakhimov Square (post number 1) and on Sapun Mountain. This is where there is always, one way or another, but there are people. A soldier and a sailor are often deserted, and I don’t really want any scumbags or fools to fry fried eggs on him and upload the video later.

        No tragedy? Are you at all? This is SEVASTOPOL! Read the story of the defenders of Sevastopol.
        Indeed, for a simple layman chips are more important, but I, a person who’s not timid, is always amazed at the heroism of those who defended Sevastopol! I think that they deserve the Eternal Flame, otherwise it is impossible! A bow to the earth to the defenders of Sevastopol, and the Eternal Flame - this is the least that we can pay them for being able to be born on this earth.

    This does not fit into the concept of food-industry discrediting the USSR. The ruling clique of the slippery bastards, led by a wretched DAM, with perseverance and enthusiasm worthy of a better application, does everything possible to destroy our Power.

        this in solemn days

        The eternal flame is therefore called the Eternal, because it burns constantly, and not on special days. You need to remember constantly, and not on holidays (sorry for the banality).
        If cyclically extinguished and ignited, then it does not belong there at all.

        Sevastopol, its defenders deserve these lights. And do not equal everything in Moscow! But if one fire "went out" and from it the "little girl" pulls out coins? !!!! Himself realized or daddy thought up? In any case, if there is disrespect for this monument, which is not even burning, expect that sausages will be fried on burning soon too!

        In fact, even on the Malakhov Hill near the Kornilovskaya Tower — they are planning to light it again after reconstruction — everything except the fire at the Sailor and the Soldier burned during the USSR and, for example, they laid flowers on weddings, as well as on holidays, anniversaries and etc.

      There is other data on May 14, 2015
      According to the census, in Russia there are more than 3600 memorials with the Eternal Flame. The record holder for the number of Eternal Flames was the Krasnodar Territory, where 261 memorials were erected. Among the cities of federal significance, the leader is Moscow (7), followed by St. Petersburg (6) and Sevastopol, in whose territory there are four memorials of the Eternal Flame.

        And can you list all seven (!) Moscow? Here on Poklonnaya Hill, in the Alexander Garden and at the war memorial on Preobrazhensky shaft (the former schismatic cemetery) - there is. Where four more - I can not imagine. I suspect you too.
        P.S. 7 in Moscow is a clear mistake. Or this number includes something lit temporarily. Or is it taking into account Moscow and the Moscow region.

    Something tells me that the reason for the absence of the Eternal Flame is extremely banal: there is no money, you are holding on. But Gazprom, although supposedly formally a “national treasure”, is not a charitable organization and will not supply gas to the detriment of the wallets of fat belts. Not market, you know ...

    I live in Sevastopol, I’m surprised that at this time of the year there’s someone around the “Soldier and Sailor”, the commentator is somewhat right Camrad (Sevastopol). But the problem of patriotism was voiced correctly, our "unofficial" patriotism has somewhat faded, and it is unlikely that it will be possible to sharply increase it by administrative calls. The reasons for the locals are obvious - medical cramps, growing employment problems, poor competence of visiting leaders.

      Absolutely agree. Only I would say that often it’s not that poor competence, but simply wrecking (for example, repairing Ostryakov Avenue at the height of the season by completely destroying it, installing new elements worse than the previous ones, building unnecessary sidewalks with 0 pillars in the middle of the track, narrowing outings , prohibition of left turns in the absence of rings for turns, etc.).

    One author is surprised that the Eternal Flame does not burn, another that thieves educate young people instead of the state. In order not to be surprised, go down the site further to the Opinion and News sections. See the meaning of the articles and the submission form. Read the content of the comments.

      I hope to be temporarily disabled. In the same Kiev, poured with cement annually, it still burns and even ATO veterans are already protecting it. And here is Sevastopol. Staples, and increased attention.
      But Fire is a symbol - and the symbolism of the present time is completely different.
