MOSCOW, May 20 /TASS/. A WWII common grave to Soviet soldiers will be renovated in the city of Pazmand in Hungary, Vladimir Popov, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry department for immortalizing the memory of servicemen who died defending their homeland.
Employees of the Russian Defense Ministry responsible for the preservation of war memorials in Hungary met Pazmand’s mayor, architects and engineers at the Hungarian side’s request to discuss sketches and projects for the renovation of the Russian (Soviet) war memorial and the common grave located in the city.
"The participants in the meeting discussed the procedure and stages of repair and renovation works; agreed on participation interest and clarified details of the forthcoming renovation," Popov said noting that a younger sister and a niece of Soviet Captain Ivan Malinovsky, who died for the liberation of Pazmand from the Nazis and is buried in the common grave, were present at the meeting.
The remains of 274 Soviet soldiers who fought in Hungary during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) are lying at the war cemetery in Pazmand. Fifty-one soldiers have been identified. "Work is under way to establish the identity of the remaining bodies," Popov stressed.
