The Russian Military Historical Society (RVIO) will renovate and develop the Ostraya Mogila memorial in Lugansk by City Day in September, a RVIO functionary told the Lugansk Media Center.
"The memorial will be upgraded to link the four generations of Lugansk region defenders: Civil War and Great Patriotic War fighters, militiamen of 2014 and Special Military Operation participants,” RVIO Deputy Chairman Nikolai Ovsiyenko said.
He discussed renovation details with Lugansk mayor Manolis Pilavov, Lugansk People's Republic Culture Minister Dmitry Sidorov and RVIO representative in the LPR Vadim Lobin.
“It is very important to unveil the monument by Lugansk City Day which is marked on September 10 this year," Ovsiyenko said. “I very much hope that this place will motivate visitors to learn more about Lugansk defenders.”
In 2022, the Russian Military and Historical Society helped restore the Unconquered and Prince Igor monuments in the LPR.
The Russian Historical Society is a public scientific body with the mission to form all-Russian historical culture based on objective study, coverage and promotion of Russian and world history and preserve national memory and cultural heritage. RVIO was established in 2012 pursuant to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree.*i*ie
