In Kaliningrad, opened a monument built on folk remedies to intelligence soldiers

In Kaliningrad, a monument to reconnaissance soldiers was erected, built on popular funds — about two thousand citizens and dozens of organizations from the Kaliningrad region, Moscow and St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Voronezh, from Belarus and Poland became participants in an almost six-year campaign to raise funds for the first in Russia collective monument to the soldiers who died reconnaissance.


Veterans, acting as part of reconnaissance and sabotage formations in the East Prussia direction, became honorary guests of the ceremony. The last of the surviving members of the legendary reconnaissance group "Jack" Gennady Yushkevich arrived from Minsk. From Bryansk - Konstantin Panasenko, who served in the security group "Sunrise". Valentin Kalinin, who now lives in Moscow, was a radio operator as part of the special commando-reconnaissance group Vol. Veteran Anatoly Stepanovich Iglakov joined his comrades in combat feat.

After the opening and consecration of the monument, veterans were awarded the highest award of Russian intelligence - the Order of the carnation.


The head of the Kaliningrad representative office of the Union of Military Intelligence Veterans, Anatoly Gribanov, said that the participants of reconnaissance groups made an invaluable contribution to the preparation of an offensive operation in the East Prussian direction. “Without this intelligence, the losses of the Soviet troops could have been many times greater. This is the only monument in Russia and the world dedicated to the collective feat of Soviet intelligence officers in preparation for the East Prussian operation and to our colleagues who died in local wars and conflicts after the war, ”the military intelligence veteran told KaliningradLive in the government of the Kaliningrad region.


Fundraising for the construction of a memorial, he said, has become a truly popular affair. “Schoolchildren came and handed over, for example, five thousand rubles. Several clergymen transferred 9 thousand rubles. It became a nationwide affair. Many thanks to Governor Nikolai Tsukanov: according to his decision we received almost 3 million rubles, which were aimed at creating a sculpture, ”said Gribanov.

“More than two and a half thousand intelligence officers acted on the territory of East Prussia in the last two years of the Great Patriotic War. Most died or went missing. But they all fulfilled their duty to the Motherland. I believe that everyone who has made even the smallest contribution to the creation of this monument has become a participant in a meaningful, truly popular, civil project. As long as the memory lives, the country lives, and we will live under a peaceful sky, ”said Nikolai Tsukanov.

    I watched the plot on the weekend. Shame ...
    More than six years, with folk money ...
    Where are our ministries with ministers? 7 Where tama we have our minister of culture7 And, it began before him and he did not know? Oh yes. He’s recently. Not at all.
    Where are we responsible for culture at the ministry of defense? Ah, comrade A. Gubankov, sorry, "Mr." Rap writes, a highly intellectual, philological work: “Come on, youth, move your figure. Are you closer to the army with fate and kind. Do you want to stand next to the hero, the rescuer? Then hurry after the army detachment!” Authority boosts. No, not mine (what are you!), ARMY !!!
    Where is it to think about the monuments. There, the little people fussed, they themselves gathered.

    I am disgusted to even write all this ...

    A low bow to the scouts' heroes ... And many thanks (I can imagine how much they have endured from bureaucrats) to everyone who participated in the preparation and implementation of the installation of the monument. hi

    You said everything correctly, there is nothing to add, except one:
    ...and Poland took part in an almost six-year fundraising campaign for the first monument to fallen reconnaissance soldiers
    but Ukraine is not mentioned ... Thanks to the Poles, it is also visible to those people for whom the American policy was unable to brainwash. Eternal GLORY and a low bow to HEROIM scouts.

    The monument for folk money is one of the highest correctness of the memory of the fallen.
    This is real memory.
    It is good that the youth took part in this, they need it in the first place.

    But six years ...
    How much do you recall the insignificant projects for which the state easily throws large amounts of money ...

    Sincere thanks to the organizers and everyone who participated in the opening of the monument.

    A low bow to the Scouts.

    Where are our ministries with ministers? Where is our Minister of Culture there?

    But this was done by deputies of the EP in Konakovo, Tver region. as part of the replacement, having served for decades, faithfully, of old monuments with new ones. On BUDGET funds. As they say, feel the difference: on the left - before, on the right - after.

        Believe me, everyone is happy: the city authorities, who wrote this creation according to the documents, like a masterpiece of modern art, bought at Sothebys auction for unimaginable money (which you won’t do for the sake of the memory of our heroic ancestors) and a sculptor who received a fee for selling in principle, Apparently, he did not expect due to a misunderstanding by the broad masses of his genius. And the people - yes, who is asking him?
        Hence the conclusion: if you want it well, do it yourself. Collect money, order a project, etc. And the authorities do not bother to "develop" budget money. Otherwise, get such a result.

          Yes, of course, the monument in Kaliningrad is really a classic, normal, HUMAN monument. In its manufacture (not made in Kaliningrad), photographs of real scouts were used. Surnames, I unfortunately do not remember. It was remembered that the girl blew herself up with a grenade ... so as not to be captured.
          In your photos - request I don’t know how ...

        it’s just right away that the author didn’t put his soul into his creation (we don’t need his name), I’ll try to compose not a big note about one very interesting monument in Kiev, the soul is visible there

      If not for the stylized PPSh, one would have thought that Leonid Ilyich was on the hunt.

    The monument is very good! The exploits of the scouts (as well as other warriors) must not be forgotten!
    And they would take care of living veterans! Although the authorities do not care about them.

    The monument is great! But here in the comments they quarreled, missing something, that the governor took part in the collection of money and allocated almost 3mln. rubles. Don't you think that the governor is not there? hi
