Monument to internationalist warriors unveiled in Krichev

Monument to internationalist warriors was unveiled in Krichev on September 30; the action was a part of festivities dedicated to the town's birthday and the 70th anniversary of liberating the district centre from the German-fascist invaders. The information was provided by the chairman of the regional department of Belarusian Union of Afghan War Veterans public association Vladimir Vasilenko.

The memorial is made from black and white granite. The black granite with inscription of the years of the war conflict symbolizes the mountains of Afghanistan. The white granite symbolizes the feat of arms of our compatriots. Near the monument there are two memorial slabs where the names of seven internationalist warriors and three warriors perished at local wars are inscribed.

"It's not a matter of chance that the monument is placed in the Heroes' Alley in Krichev. It symbolizes the intergenerational continuity. We must remember our history, and provide conditions for patriotic education of the next generations taking the best feats of arms and love to the homeland as examples", Vladimir Vasilenko told.

The project was initiated by the district department of Belarusian Union of Afghan War Veterans public association and the local administration. And the money earned by the population of Krichev during the subbotnik (community work day) went to sponsor the monument production.

In general 126 representatives of Krichev district partook in Afghan war; seven of them perished.
