A memorial plaque of the ball is installed on the facade of the building of the Military-Historical Museum of the Eastern Military District.

The solemn event was attended by the Deputy Commander of the Eastern Military District for military-political work Colonel Alexander Manakov, Minister of Culture of the Khabarovsk Territory Yuri Ermoshkin, representatives of the Yunarmiya movement and the military-historical society.

Colonel-General Grigory Stern (years of life August 6, 1900 – October 28, 1941) was closely associated with the Far East and the protection of its borders. Over the years, he served as chief of staff of a separate Red Banner Far Eastern army, commander of the Far Eastern front. He is credited with repelling the aggression of the Japanese militarists in the Far East and winning the battles on the Khalkhin-Gol River.

“Despite the great services to the Motherland, the name of Grigory Stern was erased from memory, like many other Soviet military leaders and intelligence officers who were unreasonably repressed at the end of the 1930s. The opening of a memorial plaque to the Soviet military leader, hero of the war in Spain, participant in military conflicts with Japan in the Far East, Grigory Stern, is a message to the younger generation to study their history. It is very difficult, but in the end these are people who gave their lives for the independence of our Motherland, for the inviolability of its borders and for the integrity of our state, “Colonel Alexander Manakov said, speaking at the ceremony.

In 2020, the Russian Military Historical Society, with the support of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, embarked on a program to perpetuate the memory of the repressed and subsequently rehabilitated Soviet military leaders and intelligence leaders. Perpetuation takes place at the place of birth or service of representatives of the commanding staff.
