The memorial sign “To security officers of Mogilev region”

December 18 Mogilev opened the memorial sign “To security officers of Mogilev region”. The idea was initiated by the Mogilev regional KGB office and supported by the public association of the KGB veterans “Chest”.

According to Valery Vakulchik, perpetuation of the memory of those who defended our Motherland has become a good tradition of great importance in Belarus. This is a state policy directed at preserving historical memory, unity and intergenerational continuity. 

It is very symbolic that the sign was installed before Day of state security officer. The sign is to commemorate security officers (officials of Cheka), known and unknown soldiers of the invisible front who died performing their civil and official duty. The sign is a symbol of self-sacrifice in the name of Motherland.

The memorial sign “To security officers of Mogilev region” is a stela made of granite bearing a bronze heraldic sign of UKGB and a bás-relief in the shape of Mogilev region’s contour with three security officers representing various epochs. The monument is designed by Korney Alekseyev, a sculptor. 

The financial assistance was provided by Mogilev regional authorities and voluntary donations of the public association of the KGB veterans “Chest” and UKGB officers. The production cooperative “Dary”, the metal technology institute, the road and bridge enterprise, ZhREU communal unitary enterprise took an active part in the sign’s manufacturing and installing.
