Monument to Vanished Village Appeared in Chelyabinsk Region

Monument to the village which disappeared from the face of the earth half a century ago has been established near Chesma.
      The village had existed for almost 40 years, with its names changed repeatedly. It was once called Novoukrainskaya, then Poltavka, but more often it was known as resettlement site 13.
      The first villagers appeared in 1925-26, when they migrated there from land-poor areas of Russia and Ukraine to develop virgin lands of the South Ural. However, later in the framework of campaign on liquidation of "unpromising" villages and settlements in the 1960s it was abandoned. And now the former villagers hoary with age have gathered there for the memorial opening. For them this monument symbolizes respect of the state to their personal roots.
