Klichev district to re-bury the remains of the Soviet aircraft’s crew crashed in 1943

Klichev Township will re-bury the remains of the Soviet aircraft’s crew crashed in 1943. The remains will be re-buried in Pervomaiskaya Street. The information is provided by the ideology, culture and youth’s affairs department of Klichev district executive committee.

The meeting will be held with participation of Mogilev district’s and region’s administration representatives, public representatives, the youth, relatives of the fallen from the Russian Federation and Uzbekistan.

The first evidence of the aircraft crashed in autumn 1943 by the village of Mezhnoye was revealed by Klichev district search group “Olsa” of Mogilev regional history and patriotic club “VIKKRU” in 2012. And only January 29 2015 the remains of the crew and an engine of the aircraft with blades and cylinders were excavated. A number plate on the engine helped to learn some details of the tragedy in Klichev forest and the fate of the pilots. A long-haul bomber “IL-4” with a group of five aircraft left the airfield near Moscow to bomb German war objects in the area of Minsk. The same day in the evening the aircraft was shot down in the area of Mezhnoye village. The aircraft crashed with two crew people on board. Their remains belong to a flight radio operator, Guards sergeant Vyacheslav Hailov and an air gunner, Guards junior sergeant Hakim Muzaffarov.

The great commander Alexander Suvorov once said that the war is over only when the last soldier is buried. 70 years after the war there are still soldiers whose fates and lives are unknown. The information about those who defended Belarus during the Great Patriotic War is gathered little by little. The search work is really difficult but it helps to find out the names of heroes.
