On the eve of the solemn initiation into the youth army, pupils of military-patriotic clubs at the age of 10 to 17 years ennobled the territory on which the Volochaevskaya Sopka memorial is located.

The guys removed the fallen leaves, debris and dry grass, swept the paths.

At the moment, the monument is being restored for the 100th anniversary of one of the largest and final battles of the Civil War “Volochaevsky battle”. It is planned to recreate the original appearance of the monument. The project was developed according to old photographs and technical plans in order to preserve the uniqueness of the memorial site.

The schoolchildren also visited the Historical Museum, where they learned about the details of the battles that took place in those places.

In addition, a park will be built near the monument, where solemn events dedicated to the entry of the youth of the region into the All-Russian military-patriotic public movement “Yunarmiya” will be held.

For reference:

The memorial dedicated to the “Volochaevsky battle” is located on the top of the June-Koran hill. Next to the monument crowned with the figure of a Red Army soldier, there is a mass grave of those killed in the battle for the Soviets, a cenotaph to Marshal of the Soviet Union Vasily Blucher and a chapel of the icon of the Mother of God “Softening Evil Hearts.”

“Volochaevskoe battle” – one of the episodes of the Civil War, which died down at the beginning of the century in the Far East. It marked the brilliant victory of the People’s Revolutionary Army under the command of V.K. Blucher over representatives of the Far Eastern White Army. The Volochaev Memorial Museum-Monument keeps the memory of the heroes of this battle.
