MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday unveiled in Moscow a monument to Soviet World War II hero, Marshal Konstantin Rokossovsky, one of the most prominent Red Army commanders.

"Rokossovsky took part in almost all major victories of the Great Patriotic War," Medvedev said at the opening ceremony adding that Rokossovsky's 16th army stopped Nazi troops near Moscow and "saved our capital."

In September 1942 Rokossovsky was appointed commander of the Stalingrad Front and helped develop "the brilliant operation Uranus," which led to the surrender of Nazi Field Marshal Friedrich Paulus and over 90,000 German troops, Medvedev said.

The monument by sculptor Alexander Rukavishnikov features Rokossovsky on horseback during the 1945 Victory Parade in Moscow.
