“We will not allow to diminish the significance of the Great Victory”: Putin and Lukashenko took part in the opening of the Rzhev Memorial

55

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko attended the opening of the Rzhev Memorial dedicated to the Soviet soldier. Opening the monument, the President of the Russian Federation addressed the Russians.


The Russian leader recalled that the Soviet soldiers who fell near Rzhev gave their lives for the Russians to live under a peaceful sky:

We will always remember what a high price the Soviet people paid for the Victory, what a blow the Red Army took upon itself and repelled. Time has no power over this feat. And he should never, cannot be forgotten.

Alexander Lukashenko also said his word:

Today we open a monument to soldiers, among whom were representatives of all the peoples of the Soviet Union. We give them the filial duty, the duty of holy memory. While we create monuments, while we come to the monuments, we will not fight, we will avoid this terrible tragedy. As soon as we forget the road to these holy places, we will definitely fight. This is the meaning of our actions in these bright holidays. We will not allow diminishing the significance of the Great Victory, distorting the truth about the events of that time and rehabilitating Nazism. Otherwise, the tragedy may happen again. Belarus and Russia, which have paid millions of their citizens' lives for peace on earth, are absolutely united in this endeavor.


“We will not allow to diminish the significance of the Great Victory”: Putin and Lukashenko took part in the opening of the Rzhev Memorial


During the ceremony, the presidents laid flowers and honored the memory of the dead Soviet soldiers with a moment of silence.



The memorial complex covers an area of ​​4 hectares. It was created near the village of Khoroshevo in the Tver region. In these places in 1942-43 there were bloody battles with the Nazi invaders over the Rzhev ledge.

The memorial was designed by architect Konstantin Fomin and sculptor Andrei Korobtsov. Its central element is a sculpture of a Soviet soldier 25 meters high, made of bronze. He is supported by a flock of 35 cranes. The sculpture is set on a 10-meter mound mound.

Most of the funds spent on the creation of the memorial were voluntary donations from citizens.

    awesome place. Great country, great Leader. It’s time for Lukashenko to remember that Belarusians are also great. Even the Ukrainians were great. And now on the farm, for a billion BONDS AT THE INTEREST, they receive for the removed minister from overseas and are proud of the Act of Proclamation of the Ukrainian State of 1941



    This point is especially:

    3. The newly rising Ukrainian State will closely cooperate with the National Socialist Great Germany, which, under the leadership of its Leader Adolf HITLER, creates a new order in Europe and in the world and helps the Ukrainian People free themselves from the Moscow occupation.

      It is worth adding:

      The Ukrainian National Revolutionary Army, which is being created on Ukrainian soil, will continue to fight the allied German army against the Moscow occupation of the Sovereign Soborny Soborny State and the new order throughout the world. ”

          Vlasov fought against the Kremlin and the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and against officers and soldiers.
          There are enough of these in our country now. True, they are all under the shkonki or in the forum struggle - but there is such a substance, yes. Now jihadists are fighting against our federal troops, and all this dandruff is Vlasov’s, a new spill, at their dance floor. They can’t blow up a bomb - they can also go out against officers, but writing a post is easy.

          But Vlasov was hanged and these time would come.

          And here is Rzhev and Ukraine ???

          You are no longer in the subject. This is what you correctly noticed. Ukroariy now on the other hand and the Great Victory Day you no longer have.

          Ukraine will not celebrate Victory Day on May 9, the country's foreign minister, Vadim Pristayko, said in an interview with Ukraine 24 TV channel.

              PS Where is Zelensky? You told him that

              Representatives of all the republics of the USSR, including Ukrainians, died in a meat grinder.


              ? Maybe you told the local Natsik about this? Or is your hymn enough only for such letters in Russian forums?

              Are you celebrating May 9? While no one sees.

                      laughing this is not a provocation, this is a lesson in the history of independent Ukraine
                      Provocation is if I came up with this story. And I showed you the document - from which you have heartburn.

                      Adolf, I’m glad to independent Ukraine, and you are glad. Count what a coincidence?)

                      And now, Adolf would honor you and stroke you on the head. For your defense of the independence of the great Ukrainian power

                      PS You posted about Vlasov. You thought you could stab me with the fact that there was such vomit that was hanged.

                        Are you not a patriot choli? Whose Crimea is it?

                        And whose Donbas are you miserable?


                        Well, not miserable this vyser - squinting under the state under a yellow-black warrant.

                        Because your miracle army cannot go there request then Donbass is not yours. And your waffle army cannot enter the Crimea - it means that Crimea is not yours.

Money was given to the writers. So it started. I am Russian living in Ukraine and personally I am not happy that your degenerates, with one crinkle, show their pseudo-patriotism in such a stupid way, pouring mud on everyone in a row, not even understanding the subject. The main thing is to bark loudly stereotyped and according to the training manual ...

    I liked the monument. It is good that we began to learn EVERYTHING about everything that happened in this war. Not only about victories, but also about fierce battles, heavy losses ... failures of the first years of the war. Not in the slightest degree does not detract from the courage of our soldiers, nor the significance of our victory.

      The monument is good! But here is a place that is incomprehensibly chosen. Maybe I'm not in the know. Now I look at the map and see that the focal line of the front was to the north, along the channels of small rivers and settlements. It is also known that German motorcyclists were found on the railway. station Flax near Torzhok. By the way, the Wehrmacht got solidly there.

      Rzhev is a memory of how Zhukov and his subordinates drove our soldiers to death, and then the Communists tried to hide the truth of that meat grinder. The soldier was a consumable.

    At the memorial, a road departs from the Riga highway. If you go from Moscow - to the right. Do not be lazy, drive along it for four kilometers, to the village. Khoroshevo. There is a museum of the Kalinin Front, in the same hut where the Supreme stayed in 1943, during a visit to Rzhev. The museum is small but interesting. And in front of the museum is a bust of Stalin. If you drive farther from Khoroshev for 10 kilometers, you will see a memorial at the site of a mass grave on the high bank of the Volga. Nikolay Gastello’s brother, Victor, battalion commander 220 sd is buried in it. And even further, a monument to the burned villages of the Tver land. By the way, this monument is not far from the village of Chernovo, where the action of the film "Rzhev" based on the book by Kondratiev takes place.
