60th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War
The monument was installed in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. It is a built-in granite stone. On the northern facade there is a granite plaque with a slotted dedicatory inscription: “The stone was laid on May 9, 2005 in honor of the beginning of the construction of the park of the 60th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.” The victory of the Soviet Union over fascist Germany had a huge impact on the post – war development of mankind and had a true world-historical significance. During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, the honor and dignity, sovereignty of the multinational Soviet Union were protected, and the world was freed from the threat of Nazi enslavement. The victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War came at a high price. In 1941-1945, the Soviet Union lost a large number of army and navy personnel, civilians, weapons, military equipment, a large number of cultural and art monuments were looted and destroyed by the Nazis, many cities and settlements were destroyed and burned. The German occupiers inflicted enormous damage on the national economy of the USSR, barbarously destroying 1,710 cities, 70,000 villages and other settlements, blowing up and destroying about 32,000 industrial enterprises. The war became a serious test of the economic and organizational capabilities of the Soviet state. Our people remember and highly appreciate the courage and valor of the resistance fighters. However, the historical truth is that it was the Soviet people and their valiant army that blocked the path of Nazism to world domination, experienced the brunt of the war and made the most serious contribution to the defeat of Nazi Germany. It was the Soviet people who, with their incredible efforts, bloody work on the front line and in the rear, put maximum effort and means to achieve Victory in the most brutal and bloody war of mankind.
