In memory of еру gone in eternity
In the year of the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory we hold the memory of VIAM`s employees, who gave their life in a savage struggle with fascism. It`s gratifying, that soon, on October 14, 2015 the monument to the 7th division soldiers of the people's emergency volunteer corps of the Bauman district of Moscow will be opened on the Razguliay square.
The monument is a national one on the right, as the fund raising for its creation is carried out by the citizens, each of whom will receive a certification of donation and will be invited to the opening ceremony of the monument. The sum, which has already been collected, amounts about 3 million 700 thousand rubles. “Let`s it be our national monument! Let`s it be embodied of good will of each of us, a piece of our heart and our labor! The Generation of the Great Victory deserves it, and our children are worthy of their memory”, the organizers pointed out.
