Remains of Red Army soldiers and civilians will be reburied September 11 in Velichkovo village, Bobruisk district. Svetlana Nosove, deputy head of the district administration, says that representatives of the 52nd specialized search battalion have been searching for the fallen soldiers and civilians for six years.

In her words, local enthusiasts are of great assistance in this search work. This year the works began in April and lasted till September. In 8 villages of Bobruisk district remains of over 300 people were found. Over 60 of them were soldiers. Local residents helped the searchers to locate the sites where works should take place.

The heroes and victims of the Great Patriotic war will be buried in the village common grave that already keeps the remains of 10 soldiers. The ceremony of reburying will gather representatives of Bobruisk district authorities, war veterans, the public.  The name of only one fallen soldier was identified: Vasily Menyailenko, a native of Saratov region. His medallion was found by Borovaya village. The searchers managed to contact his second cousin Nina Shevtsova of 23 years old. The woman’s health condition did not let her travel to Bobruisk district. That’s why the remains of Vasily Menyailenko were passed to Alexander Starostenko, head of Elovatsky municipality.
