War shades

One of the oldest streets of Mogilev – Pionerskaya one – has been witnessing the replacement of heat pipeline. At the beginning of August, while digging channels, the remains of a soldier of the Red Army were found there. Representatives of the 52nd specialized search service arrived there on Monday; soon, remains of three more men were found.

They are likely to have defended the city in 1941; judging by the pieces of the belt and boots one of them was probably an officer. There was also found a dozen of grenades RG-23, tankards, a cigarette case, glasses, a purse with coins. In spite of being corroded, grenades were still dangerous. Thus, field engineers were called for to defuse them.

“Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to identify the defenders’ names, as far as no personal medallions were found”, deputy military commissar of Mogilev city military registration and enlistment office Andrei Kravtsov told.
