Glory Square. South Sakhalin

Glory Square sports a monument erected in honor of the Soviet soldiers who died during the battles for the liberation of South Sakhalin and Kuril from the Japanese in 1945. The memorial was unveiled on September 3, 1980. The ensemble contains a pillar with the inscription: ”Eternal Glory to the Heroes”, a bronze sculpture of a soldier, a sculptural ensemble depicting two sailors, a pedestal in reinforced concrete with a brass cross and an Eternal Flame. On the pedestal it reads ”The Motherland has given you its immortality, your names are not forgotten”. The granite busts of several Soviet Unions Heroes (Vilkov, Savuchkin, Buyukla, and other) have been replaced by new ones in 2006.
