Antakalnis Cemetery 3

 

The memorial to the Russian Red Army dead, who fell in World War II.  Properly maintained, etc., in spite of the rather unhappy historical relationship with the Bear.

A nice solid piece of artwork. I remember when Chad & I were in Estonia there was a VAST Russian memorial site outside of Tallinn completely neglected

The helmets made me think of either German or American soldiers at first. It is very impressive.
A very harsh military style to this monument Tom. I am surprised it is still in place, but hate to see historical things destroyed.
The design is very thoughtful.
Impressive memorial
