MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The remains of 10 Red Army soldiers, found by searchers in the “Fiery Frontier” zone, were reburied in the Dydymkin farm in the Kursk region of the Stavropol Territory at the mass grave, where more than 8570 soldiers and officers are buried.
The Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 left more than 30 thousand Red Army soldiers dead on the battlefields with the Nazi invaders in the Kursk region of the Stavropol Territory. A significant part of them was buried in 28 soldiers’ mass graves. But even now, after 77 years after the battles, the earth gives us the remains of soldiers and officers of the Soviet Army who died a heroic death in the battles for the liberation of the Kursk region from the Nazis.
The event, timed to coincide with the Day of the defeat of Nazi troops by Soviet troops in the battle for the Caucasus, was attended by the leaders of the Kursk region authorities, deputies, security officials, search engines, Cossacks, a large number of young people, schoolchildren and representatives of the region’s public.
Father Alexander, a priest of the Orthodox Church, held a service in memory of the fallen defenders of the Motherland. Then, to the funeral music of a brass band, the servicemen lowered four urns, upholstered with red cloth, into the grave. Each urn contained the remains of soldiers. According to the tradition of military honors, volleys from machine guns were heard.
The events of the Great Patriotic War are receding further into the past. But, as you know, the war cannot be considered over until the last dead soldier is buried. The search for their remains will continue.
