Today, at the military memorial in the Valley of Glory (Murmansk Region), a solemn mourning ceremony was held to reburial the remains of Soviet soldiers who defended the Kola North during the Great Patriotic War. It was attended by representatives of the command of the Northern Fleet and the leadership of the Murmansk region, law enforcement agencies and municipal authorities, servicemen of the submarine forces and the army corps of the Northern Fleet, search engines, youth soldiers and relatives of the fallen defenders of the Arctic.

The remains of 79 Red Army soldiers discovered during the summer search season were given military honors to the earth. 66 nameless defenders of the Motherland were buried in a mass grave, and 13 Red Army soldiers, whose names were restored, were buried separately.

In honor of the fallen heroes, a threefold volley was fired, and wreaths were laid at the burial. After a short meeting, the soldiers of the North Sea marched in a solemn march, keeping in line with the military memorial – welcoming the killed Red Army soldiers in formation.

The ceremony of reburial of the remains of the defenders of the Soviet Arctic, found during the search period, is traditionally held in the Murmansk region in October. It is part of a complex of commemorative events dedicated to the anniversary of the Petsamo-Kirkenes offensive operation, which was carried out by the soldiers of the Karelian Front and the Northern Fleet from October 7 to October 31, 1944, defeating the Nazis in the Kola Arctic and Northern Norway.
