War is Death

Victory Day parade is celebrated every year. The main holiday of the country. People will take to the streets of the city – children and adults with flags and balloons. Everywhere you can hear military songs, see theatrical productions and even dance a waltz. But war is not a holiday. It ends not with victory, but with broken lives on both sides. It ends with mass graves. In the cemetery, in the silence you can feel the horror of the war.

A sign in front of the entrance to the military burial

In 2011, a military burial was found in the village of Svobodnoye, Kamennogorsk district. Locals were looking for metal to hand over, and found bones. As a local resident of the village recalls: «There were mounds in the forest. We burned pioneer bonfires, collected snowdrops. No one knew that there was a burial there. Back in Soviet times, a family came looking for their dead son. They were brought to the forest, they said: «Well, where is your son buried? We don’t know. They were taken to the officers’ mess, fed and sent home. And then they found it.»
