In Samara, in the military history museum of the Central Military District (CVO), a ceremonial transfer of a capsule with earth from the Brest Fortress took place. On the testimony confirming that this sacred land was taken from the places of fierce battles and immortal deeds, a poem is written:

“Here in the stones and now
The cannonade is buzzing
And the blood comes out
Dew from the sand.

The fighters that stood here
Sometime to death,
In the hearts of generations
Centuries will live. “

The capsule and the certificate signed by the director of the Brest Fortress-Hero Memorial Complex were handed over to the museum director by the head of the department of the Samara Pedagogical University Garnik Akopov. He himself received the sacred land from the hands of the head of the Brest-Irkutsk-Brest rally Alexei Manets, who was passing through Samara.

Participants of the multi-kilometer rally in every major city left similar capsules with the Brest land as a memory of the terrible tragedy that befell our country.

After the solemn transfer of the capsule to the audience, the chairman of the Samara regional branch of the all-Russian public organization of veterans of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Major General Volodya Sargsyan, and the honorary chairman of the organization, Lieutenant General Anatoly Shapovalov, spoke to the audience. They stressed that the defenders of the Brest Fortress immediately showed the Nazis how fearlessly Soviet soldiers can fight. Their heroism amazed the whole world.

The cadets of the Samara School No. 170 were in the Honor Guard during the transfer of the sacred relic.
