CHISINAU, May 4 (Itar-Tass) — Remains of Soviet soldiers who died during the Yassy-Kishinev Offensive Operation in 1994 will be reburied in Moldova on Friday.
Remains of 18 soldiers found by search groups will be reburied. Public members, veterans and diplomats from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and the United States will take part in the ceremony.
“Search in this area is made with support of the Russian Embassy. Owing to that, remains of 64 Soviet soldiers have been buried in a mass grave near the settlement of Spea over the past three years,” Valentin Rybitsky from Rossotrudnichestvo (Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States) in Moldova told Tass.
The Serpeni memorial complex 50 kilometers of Chisinau at the site of sanguinary battles was built in 2004 at the initiative of former president of Moldova Vladimir Voronin and with assistance of the government of Moscow and some regions of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus in memory of 11,000 Soviet soldiers killed there during the Yassy-Kishinev operation.
