MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Veterans of the Barnaul missile formation will make a 600-kilometer motor rally through the places of the first battles of the Zhizdrinsky offensive operation with the laying of wreaths at the monuments and mass graves of Soviet soldiers. The rally will take place on the territory of the Sukhinichsky, Duminichsky, Lyudinovsky and Zhizdrinsky districts of the Kaluga region.
“The famous 21st light artillery brigade was subsequently transformed into our missile division, so its combat path formed the basis of the rally,” said the former commander of the Barnaul division of the Strategic Missile Forces, Major General of the Reserve Sergei Matveev.
During the rally, a set of military-patriotic events will be held, meetings of veterans with the Yunarmeys will be planned, including a visit to the Room of Battle Glory of the Barnaul missile formation.
The veterans systematized photographs, maps and diagrams from the places of the first battles north of the town of Zhizdra (Kaluga region), and also, together with the search squads, carried out work to perpetuate the memory of the fallen soldiers of the 21st light artillery brigade.
Also veterans-missilemen collected lists of dead and missing soldiers, which were transferred to the rector of the Church of the Holy Great Martyr Barbara in the Altai Territory for commemoration.
