In Austria, the reburial ceremony of the remains of Soviet soldiers

35
At the memorial cemetery in Oberwart (Austria, Burgenland), a solemn ceremony was held for the reburial of 38 Soviet soldiers, whose remains were exhumed in the spring in the village of Veltenberg, reports RIA News.

Monument to Soviet soldiers who died during the liberation of Austria from fascism

“Among them are mainly Red Army soldiers from the 316 Rifle Division. Most of all - 12 people - were natives of Ukraine, four were born on the territory of modern Moldova, three - in Kazakhstan, one - in Belarus. Other soldiers arrived to fight in these regions from all over Russia - from the Rostov and Chkalov (now Orenburg) regions, from the Altai Territory and from the Leningrad region, from Kemerovo and from Baikal, from Tatarstan and the Tambov region, ”the agency reports.

The ceremony was attended by diplomats from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

“In the Austrian land are about 80 thousands of our countrymen: prisoners of concentration camps, forced workers, prisoners of war and soldiers. Austria’s careful treatment of Soviet war memorials and monuments is highly appreciated by us, ”said Russian diplomat Igor Nikitin.

Ukrainian Ambassador Alexander Scherba thanked the Austrian authorities for “being attentive and respectful of this difficult legacy and for the opportunity for relatives to bring flowers to a certain place where their family members rest.”

“We mourn the victims, remember this war, which calls us to sanity and preserve peace for our children and subsequent generations. We will always remember that the atrocities of fascism brought people humiliation and death. We will forever honor those who then lost their lives on the battlefields, selflessly worked in the rear, ”added the attache of the Embassy of Kazakhstan Rinat Difranov.

According to the agency, "research at the site of a small cemetery in Welterberg was conducted under the direction of the historian Peter Siksl, who has been searching and re-burial of Soviet citizens in Austria for many years, about which he has already written two books."

    This is a good example of the attitude towards the fallen for freedom from fascism. As a warning to the Baltic states, Ukronazists and other peoples with a short historical memory.

              They just do not divide either by nationality or by contribution. Except from others. For the Austrians, these were RUSSIAN SOLDIERS.

          The fallen soldiers were listed in decreasing order of numbers.
          For information. The Austrians reburied the SOLDIER of the RED Army, who fell in the fight against Nazism, and not the punishers of the OUN.

        Vienna was taken without heavy artillery, so as not to destroy the architecture. How many soldiers died for this. It is a pity if Austria also forgets about those whom it is obliged to remember.

    "Most of all - 12 people - were natives of Ukraine"
    With all due respect, is this political sarcasm? They seemed to be all the wars of the USSR, having given their debt to the end, the land rest in peace.

      Well, then everyone started sharing. sad
      By the way, count the math for the first class: 12 (Ukrainians) + 4 (Moldavians) + 3 (Kazakhs) + 1 (Belarus) = 20
      38-20 = 18 - from the territory of the RSFSR, according to modern political technology - Russians.
      If someone amuses the soul - the majority.
      For me personally - 38 of the dead Soviet soldiers.

    The worst thing will be when the Ukrainians say that it was they who liberated Austria, and we only removed the cream from their glory. It is good that the Austrians have a memory of how everything really happened, and it is a pity that fewer people in Europe remember that war.

    a ceremonial reburial ceremony of 38 Soviet soldiers

    Such an attitude should be in all normal countries that the Soviet Union liberated at the cost of the blood of its soldiers. But in many EU countries and the post-Soviet space inadequate people came to power, spitting on their ancestors, rewriting history and hating Russia. Austria is an exception, for which she thanks.

    All burials from Europe should be removed to a single memorial center in Russia. And so everywhere graves and monuments are desecrated. The operation is carried out simultaneously and at the expense of voluntary donations of the most conscious citizens. And the most conscious are the oligarchs, bankers and officials.

    My grandfather died in Austria. He was buried in a common grave, names are not indicated. But thanks to the book of Peter Sikl, the place was established precisely only last year. Thanks to everyone who cares for the grave! Unfortunately, I don’t have enough money to come there. But I will save up and be sure to visit there.

    Well done Austrians - they did not start correctly, but after the war they behave more correctly than anyone else. Our scribblers write according to the pattern that the Germans captured the Brest Fortress. In fact, the bulk of the attacking fortress were just the Austrians.
    But! They themselves admitted their wrongness without any clues from the outside, they maintain true neutrality throughout the post-war period, they don’t lose memory, they don’t ruin monuments, they don’t ruin cemeteries and behave more than worthily in relation to historical memory. If we started lifting our sanctions from Europe, then I would start precisely from Austria. And from Poland and the Baltic states, I would just forget to remove them. They have no memory, and we are not Julia Caesari either.

    What can the Baltic states and other Ukrainians have a historical memory if they did not have their own history.
    So one hundred years of show-off, during which they were repeatedly dipped in the muzzle in the mud, and which they call "great" history. Just small, unfinished natives, with a hypertrophied inferiority complex.
