Military Review

Memory is immortal. Memorial to the fallen soldiers of the Red Army opened in Amvrosiyivka and the remains of soldiers reburied


Donbass city Amvrosiivka ... The frosty day of December 3 ... However, despite the cold, more than a thousand people gathered here - not only Amvrosiivka residents, but also guests from Donetsk, Russia, Lugansk People's Republic - everyone who was able to reach this remote place in the east DNR, to pay tribute to the soldiers of World War II.

December 3 - Day of the Unknown Soldier. In the Donbass they could not fail to “adopt” this memorable date established in Russia. After all, a great many fighters were killed here, in the edge of mines and heaps, in the harsh years of the Great Patriotic War. And many, very many remained unknown ...

Even under the conditions when a new war was swept over the mining region, when many fields were mined now and danger was always invisibly present, the search guys from the Donbass group continued and continue their hard work. The remains of 38 Soviet soldiers were found in the land of Donetsk region.

Unfortunately, search engines are not always able to identify the victims. And of these thirty-eight fighters, only one is known. This is - Senior Lieutenant Samenkov, Penza. It was not possible to find his relatives, so he will find his last refuge here, in the land of Donbass, in a mass grave.

On the coffins - aged helmets from time to time. The priest has served a service for the soldiers. The icon is adjacent to the red banners.

The Deputy Commander of the Corps of the Ministry of Defense of the DPR, Eduard Basurin, approached the graves, threw a handful of earth ...

Many of those who came to the mourning ceremony brought with them portraits of their dead grandfathers and great-grandfathers.

Simultaneously with the reburial of the soldiers of the Red Army, the grand opening of the monument to the Unknown Soldier took place.

It is assumed that soon a plate with the names of the fallen soldiers of the DPR will be installed next to the sculpture.

In the meantime, the film has been ripped off the 2,5-meter sculpture of a soldier. Immediately, many wreaths and flowers were laid at the monument.

In his speech, Eduard Basurin said: “More than 20 years ago, we took our homeland. And what is happening in our land now is a step towards returning our Homeland and living proudly on this land. ”

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPR, Alexander Kofman, the head of the Military Historical Society of Russia Mikhail Myagkov, the head of the Amvrosievsky district Nikolay Tarasenko, the first deputy head of the executive committee of the Donetsk Republic movement Andrei Kramara, as well as the representative of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation from Rostov, and guests from the neighboring Luhansk region People's Republic.

The performance of schoolchildren - young search engines who read poems about the Great Patriotic War was very touching. After that, a minute of silence was announced.

As representatives of fraternal Russia reported, on the same day, monuments to soldiers of the Red Army who fell during the Great Patriotic War were opened in the village of Verigino, Tver Region and on the territory of the Sinyavino Heights Memorial in the Leningrad Region.

    The wind from afar ... Memory keeps fire ...
    Your regiment had a young thinning system,
    The snow was soaked in blood on your land -
    A guy like me is a couple of years younger.
    Life Color Dreams - Mom, Girl, Home,
    Spring light is pouring in from all sides ...
    You will come alive to them at the end of the day -
    Life cannot believe in the acute "never".

    A guy like me ... Bullets whistle in the rain
    Friend's hand became cold ice yesterday
    Everything has lost its color: sky, grass, dew ...
    One thing is important: hold on, because we can’t go back,
    There, next spring is your spring
    Childless laughter, maples and poplars ...
    All that you have time to do is believe, protect, love,
    A guy like me - in the short word "live"!

    In the word cozy "home" - the homeland is a gentle light,
    Bullets whistle in the rain, you will not back down, no ...
    Life color dreams - mom, girl, home ...
    There are merciless bullets pouring rain from all sides.
    You’ll come alive to them at the end of the day,
    Life does not want to believe in the acute "never" ...
    A guy like me - lead broke my heart,
    Only it’s impossible to go back ... The arch of heaven is spinning

    The sun will warm the day, the land where you are not ...
    You served her here ... Could I have done the same?
    The wind from afar ... Memory keeps fire ...
    Your regiment had a young thinning system,
    You will always be only twenty years old -
    A guy like me - May Victory Light.

    Well done, that even in conditions of war they do not stop searching for fallen soldiers. Our soldiers who died then would know about what is happening on the land that they defended in our time ... eh.

    Wonderful monument. What an expressive, courageous face of a soldier.
    And the second one. It is very good that there are many children at the opening of the monument.
    The connection of times will not break - traditions will not break, ideals of serving the Motherland will not fade.
    Donbassers did a great job in such difficult conditions. soldier
