WW2 Memorial, Ukraine (Jeep)


Recommended Posts




Location: Ukraine (Europe), Kiev (capital city), Juznaja Borchgovka district, Simirenko street. The monument has very expressive and unique design. It was bronze casted and opened in Soviet Union in year 1985. It is dedicated to 74 Soviet solders who lost their lives here in fights against Hitler's army for Kiev city in 1943.

Authors: architect Nikolai Kisli and sculptor Vladimir Chepelik


In this particular case the collapse of Soviet Union, politic changes and economic problems in Ukraine brought a hard times for the memorial. It was left without official's attention. As a result the bronze memorial board with names of the solders was stolen in 2004 together with a some small bronze parts.


Unfortunately even now the original (Pic. 1) bronze memorial board isn't recovered. It is replaced by a granite board (Pic 2) and no one solder's name is there!
