The staff of the Ust-Luga department of the North-Western basin branch laid wreaths to the monument to victims in the Great Patriotic War
On the eve of the 77th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, the staff of the Ust-Luga department of the North-Western basin branch of FSUE "Rosmorport" participated in a wreath-laying ceremony on May 6, 2022 at the permanent firing point No. 8 of the Koshkinsk defense zone of the 21st Kingisepp fortified area on the right bank of the Luga River, located near the village of Koshkino.
The Head of the Ust-Luga department Yury Akhmedov greeted the participants and congratulated everyone with the forthcoming Great Victory Day.
Employees of the Ust-Luga department laid wreaths at the foot of the monument and honored the memory of all the heroes who died during battle with a minute of silence.
The tradition of laying wreaths at this monument every year began in 2015. That year employees of the Ust-Luga department participated in a volunteer clean-up to tidy the territory around the permanent fortification and set up a memorial plaque with the names of those who died there.
