At the Memorial to the fallen soldiers of the 32nd Red Banner Rifle Division in Kubinka near Moscow, a commemorative event was held dedicated to the reburial of the remains of the Red Army soldiers of the 2nd Motorized Rifle Division and the 32nd Red Banner Rifle Division, who fell in the battle for Moscow.
Searchers of the Cuban military-historical club “Eternal Flame” together with veterans of the Airborne Forces and the Armed Forces, as well as members of the families of servicemen of a separate special-purpose guards unit of the Airborne Forces from the summer of 2017 to the present in the area of the settlements Lyakhovo, Boltino, Dyutkovo, Eremino and Brykino of the Odintsovo district of the Moscow region, the remains of 36 Red Army soldiers who died in the defense of Moscow were found and raised.
The search engines managed to establish the identity of only two fighters.
The identity of the first was established on a spoon. It turned out to be a native of the Perm Territory, a Red Army soldier of the 2nd motorized rifle division, Vladimir Fedorovich Parfenov.
The identity of a native of the Krasnodar Territory of the Red Army soldier of the 32nd Red Banner Rifle Division Kuzma Andreevich Kolesnik was identified by a soldier’s medallion.
The remaining 34 fighters could not be identified. They were reburied as Unknown Soldiers.
Soldiers-scouts of a separate special-purpose guards unit of the Airborne Forces from Kubinka, search engines, youth soldiers, representatives of local self-government bodies, veterans, schoolchildren and residents of Kubinka took part in the commemorative event.
The last honors were given to the fallen soldiers during their reburial, while the fireworks were fired, and a garland of memory, wreaths and flowers were laid.
At present, the remains of 188 heroes of the Great Patriotic War, found by search engines, are already buried in the mass grave of the Memorial to the fallen soldiers of the 32nd Red Banner Rifle Division, 48 of which have been identified.
