A memorial to pilots perished in the battles with fascist invaders during the Great Patriotic War may be built in Mogilev.  The project was initiated by the famous TV presenter, People's artist of Russia, Leonid Yakubovich who partook in the XVIIth International Festival of animated films "Animayovka - 2014" summed up in the regional centre on September 21.
Leonid Arkadievich has been keen on aviation for a long time. At his own charge TV presenter repairs old planes and set them up in different towns in honour of aviators having died during the War.   More than ten such monuments have appeared in Russia thanks to Yakubovich's initiative.
