The servicemen of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova discovered historical inscriptions made over 100 years ago in honor of the defense of Sevastopol and the victory over Turkey.

The inscriptions were under a layer of plaster on one of the buildings in the military town. They testify to the basing in the region of the 56th Zhytomyr Infantry Regiment and its differences: “Regimental St. pacification of Transylvania in 1849 “, signs on the caps with the inscription:” For the crossing of the Danube at Zimnitsa on June 15 and beyond Shipka in 1877 “.
