The main monument of the Rzhev Memorial was chosen

As the 72 year anniversary of the Victory Day is approaching, Russian government seeks the ways to commemorate, those who fought in WW2. Recently, a contest for the Rzhev Memorial took place. The work of Belgorod sculptor: Andrei Korobtsov, proved to be the best.

“I wanted to portray one of the hundreds of thousands of soldiers killed there. As if he looks at people, asking: how did this war end?” Korobtsov said.

The Red Army lost more, than 400 thousand people in the battles near Rzhev. This memorial will be a tribute to the fallen soldiers.

The monument will be installed in 2020 by the 75th anniversary of the Victory.
