MOSCOW, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - A monument to a “frontline dog” will be unveiled on Moscow’s Poklonnaya Hill on June 21 on the eve of Day of Memory and Grief which Russia has been marking on June 22, the day when the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany broke out in 1941, since 1996.
Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinskiy will attend the opening ceremony.
“More than 60,000 four-legged soldiers fought at the fronts of the Great Patriotic War defending Motherland from the enemy,” the press service of the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War says in its report. Sledge dogs delivered munitions to the frontline, ambulance dogs evacuated the wounded from the battlefield. Sapper dogs sniffed thousands of kilometers for mines and bombs in the territory of the USSR and in Europe.
It is noteworthy that frontline dogs took part in the historical Victory Parade on Red Square on June 24, 1945.
