In the footsteps of publications. The eternal flame in Sevastopol is burning again!


We are glad that including our article
“Who needs the eternal flame in Sevastopol?” Not only did many Crimean mass media notice and propagate, but a reaction followed.

And it is exactly the one we counted on.

Without blows to the chest, rallies and speeches. Just someone quietly came, broke the seal and opened the valve.

Fine. We are quite satisfied with this option.

The eternal flame at the Monument to the Soldier and Sailor is on fire again! For the first time since 2011.

Congratulations on this fact Crimea, Sevastopol and all concerned Russians!

    And before that there was no one to open the valve to.

      Then who and why put the seal, and then forgot?

      While there was no publicity, apparently they were afraid to do it, but, as you can understand, the authorities have nothing to do with it again.

        Most likely, ordinary indifference - so far no one has given anyone special instructions for lighting a fire, so no one will scratch the initiative seat, it is necessary to draw up paperwork, coordinate and pay with mezhraygaz. In our country, the rule everywhere is that the initiative has an initiator.

      The eternal flame, during the Soviet Union, burned in Sevastopol on a defensive tower, on the Malakhov Hill. If I am not mistaken, the first fire in the Union was lit there. Now there is a restoration going on and they plan to light a fire there again, which is probably why they were in no hurry to light this one.

        And not only this. Once upon a time, old cannons were used as bollards. Now they are cut down from concrete and give museum life. A trifle, but nice.

        It’s clear that after 4 years there’s no time for speeches and orchestras. But about the special character of the Crimeans, it cuts their ears. And the most disgusting. See that it was with the Crimea. Something against the background of the 4-year war in the Donbass makes you sick.

    Since they themselves lit a fire, then the people of Crimea and Sevastopol are not indifferent to our fallen heroes of World War II!

      Under a lying stone, port does not flow! Be vigilant and partial! There are also such monuments: in the Guards Simferopol district, a fire is also sometimes lit.

    Comrades gentlemen!
    Eternal flame is our TABU, this is our MEMORY! No one, ever and anywhere, has the right to extinguish or desecrate him. But whoever encroaches on him must deserve general contempt and answer according to the law strictly and unconditionally. IMHO! I have the honor! soldier

    I remember that in the 90s many cities extinguished the Eternal Fire - they said, to save gas. Veterans protested. In Novorossiysk - burned all the time! But Sevastopol! it never occurred to me that someone had put out there. I just don’t think that just one of the residents did it - they just unscrewed the valve and lit it. So they simply could not tighten the valve and everything was dangerous. That is, someone knew how to return the fire.

    The land in Sevastopol is filled with fragments of mines, bombs and shells and is saturated with the blood of Russian and Soviet soldiers. And then a candle was lit in memory of all the soldiers who had ever died, and let this candle forever burn without fading. Candle fire is our memory of fallen soldiers.
