On June 22, in Ufa, a monument to the heroes who went to the front of the Great Patriotic War was opened on the Ufa Railway Station Square in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory.
The place for the monument was chosen specially. It was this place that hundreds of thousands of the Republic residents went to the front from. And it was here where the echelons with the winners returned to in 1945.
The sculpture consists of nine human figures. They are dressed in costumes of peoples living on the territory of Bashkortostan. This demonstrates the multi-nationality of the Republic.
The monument was built on the initiative and at the personal expense of the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Head of the Representation of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly in the Republic of Bashkortostan Andrey Nazarov.
“The idea of erection of the memorial arose ten years ago. At one of the meetings with veterans, we decided that it is necessary to create a symbol of memory for those who had gone to the front. It was an amazing idea, and I set about implementing it. We thought it to be very important to emphasize the multi-national nature of our people. We have always been able to be friends and overcome all adversity together, “- said Andrey Nazarov.
The opening of the monument was held in a solemn atmosphere. The ceremony was attended by the Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov, the Mayor of Ufa Ulfat Mustafin and veterans.
