21.06.2018

In Grodno, the remains of six Red Army soldiers who died in the fight to retake the city in June 1941 have been reburied. The remains were discovered in February during construction works. Today they have been solemnly reburied in a mass grave near the WWII memorial complex in the regional center. The ID tags have helped to identify only one soldier. His name is Pavel Ryabinin. Fortunately, his relatives have been found. A grand-nephew of the Red Army soldier has come from Russia’s Murmansk to take part in the reburial ceremony.
