MOSCOW, July 20. /TASS/. Markus Meckel, the head of the German War Graves Commission, responsible for the maintenance of German war graves in Europe and North Africa, has expressed gratitude to Russia’s defense minister for comprehensive help and support in searching for and exhuming the remains of German soldiers on the Bolshoi Tyuters and Gogland islands in the Baltic sea, Russia’s defense ministry’s press service said on Wednesday.

Thanks to assistance from Russia’s military forces, the national German union "found 30 fallen German soldiers from World War II and 11 of them have already been identified," Meckel wrote in his letter to minister Sergei Shoigu.

Meckel was confident that the formation of a Russian-German inter-governmental war graves care agreement has contributed to enhancing bilateral relations between the countries. He said he hopes to continue this cooperation in the future, in particular, to initiate a project for a joint search and a digitalized archive of materials.
