SIMFEROPOL, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian military and patriotic society decided to launch from May 2014 restoration of monuments to Crimean partisans who fought on the peninsula in the Great Patriotic War times starting. Five war memorials which are not put on state register for protection by state authorities and which are situated in Mount Chalbash where fierce battles were waged with Nazi troops will be first to be repaired.
This is the war memorial “Dedov Kuren”, the place of deployment of the 18th guerrilla unit where a monument in the form of a star of a moulded metallic flower was located, a stele in the area of deployment of the 17th guerrilla unit, an obelisk at the former Zuyskaya checkpoint where a firing point was located in 1942 at which only the dates of 1941-1945 are inscribed and a plate with the names of guerrillas was torn off by looters.
There are tens, if not hundreds of such monuments in hard-to-reach Crimean highlands that require serious restoration. Only Simferopol team of Russian “young scouts” was previously engaged in search, now the project is getting on federal level.
In the World War II times more than 166 thousand people fought in battalions and units of militia in the Republic of Crimea. Fierce battles had been waged on the peninsula since September 1941 on Perekop and Ishun positions, near the cities of Sevastopol and Kerch. Guerrillas have killed more than 33 thousand fascist soldiers and have seized a large amount of weapons. As many as 200 underground organisations acted in cities and villages.
