Monument to Frontline Dog Opened in Moscow

Monument to a frontline dog has been unveiled at Poklonnaya Gora in Moscow.

The monument installation was initiated by the Russian Military Historical Society under the chairmanship of the RF Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky. They entrusted implementing the idea to the young sculptor Andrey Korobtsov. 

Specially trained dogs were inarticulate heroes of the Great Patriotic War: more than 60 thousand dogs of different breeds served in all the frontlines. They pulled out about 700 thousand seriously wounded soldiers and officers from under attacks, helped to find and neutralize 4 million tons of land mines, delivered 3500 tons of ammunition and more than 120 thousand fighting reports, not to mention the fact that at the expense of their own life dogs undermined more than 300 fascist tanks. As a token of special appreciation sentry dogs with their handlers were invited to march on Victory Parade in the Red Square on June 24, 1945.
