The restored Malakhov Kurgan reopens to visitors

According to the director of the museum, Nikolai Musienko, the memorial complex has been abandoned for many years. The Ukrainian government did not allocate funds for its reconstruction. Over the many years of oblivion, roads, monuments, memorials, and utilities have dilapidated. The torch of the Eternal Flame has been dismantled, but now it is returned to its historical a place. Since 2016, as part of the federal-targeted development program for the Crimea and Sevastopol, the Kornilov’s bastion’s defensive tower, the anti-assault battery and Senyavin’s battery, the site of Nakhimov’s mortal wound and the monument to Kornilov, the mass grave of Russian and French soldiers have been restored on the Malakhov Kurgan. Engineering communications have been replaced, the historical park is being restored.

Memorial complex "Malakhov Kurgan" is one of the six objects of the State Museum of Heroic Defense and Liberation of Sevastopol. It is included in the list of monuments of federal significance. On its territory there are 22 monuments and memorial signs devoted to the events of the Crimea (1853-1856) and the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). The mound is located on the ship's side of the city, its height is 97 meters above sea level, and the area is 13 hectares.

      Let us have few of them (the rest of the Nazis destroyed), but these monuments will be the most!
      Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten !

      Yeah, the creatures are over.
      But thank God, the Eternal Fire was returned to its former place. It remains only to restore the memorial in the Donbass
      If I had a chance to live a second life, I would live it in Sevastopol

    Place of POWER. In such places you feel like a part of a powerful people. The courage and steadfastness of which is beyond doubt in any enemy. Then, in the Crimean War, there was an intervention, consider the EU (or NATO) on Russia. Technologically superior to it, the interventionists slightly "pressed" it on the Black Sea. But not for long. After 20 years, Russia returned the "debt" ... Well, is it really not clear that Russia ALWAYS returns such "debts"? And for the shame of the 90s - it will also RETURN.
    Or maybe the Poles and others are so nervous that they feel that they’ll return it ...

        ABOUT! Then a month is not enough for you!
        Sevastopol is a unique city.

    The first really positive news for today, because with historical memory we are a people, and without it - cosmopolitan rootless.

    He was on the Malakhov Hill in 2011. Not so it was launched. Affects the departure of ministers or public services I do not know. The people visible there live worthy of their ancestors. In general, Crimea against the background of the country 404 in 2011 was clearly distinguished by warmth, cleanliness and hospitality.
    He was also in museums in the Admiral's Cathedral and in many other places. Everything was pretty well maintained. Thank God that we managed to save all this from the clutches of the Natsiks and other scum.

      It’s even scary to imagine how these creatures would mock the Shrines of Sevastopol. Thanks to the Crimeans for making a choice in favor of truth, faith and honor.

    this is BUSINESS! When you stand on it and imagine fights, Nakhimov, Kornilov, simple sailors, pride takes. There you need to carry the children, and not House-2-3 to twist the box. Then the youth will have an idea
