Memorial Complex "Black Tulip"
The construction of the memorial complex began in 1992 and finished in 1995. The monument was created to commemorate the citizens of Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk region who were killed in the local military conflicts on the territory of other countries.
The center of the composition is occupied by a figure of a sitting soldier with a submachine gun in hand. The soldier is surrounded with metal pylons imitating the carcass of plane fuselage with the names of the inhabitants of the Ural area killed during the hostilities in Afganistan.
The plane transferring the bodies of the soldiers and officers back to the homeland was called "Black Tulip". The weight of the central figure is 4.5 tons; its height is 4.7 m. The height of the pylons is 10 m. After the active phase of the counterterrorist operation in Chechnya was finished, the complex was completed with granite steles with the surnames of the servicemen killed in the Chechen Republic and Dagestan.
