Red Square Graves May Be Taken Away

Kremlin wall urns may be reburied to Mytishchi.


The first Federal Military Memorial Cemetery was opened in Moscow Oblast. There is a special Pantheon Columbarium on its territory. About 150 columbarium niches were designed for possible reburial of Kremlin wall urns with ashes belonging to eminent statesmen, military commanders, cosmonauts and scientists.


The Columbarium wall is decorated with red granite which brings up an association of Kremlin Wall color. It is possible that all graves from Red Square by Kremlin Wall may be reburied on the FMMC territory. Famous figures of Communist party, militaries and cosmonauts were buried by the Kremlin Wall. Necropolis, which was later centered of Lenin's Mausoleum, functions since November, 1917. In total there are 116 persons buried by the wall. Most of them were cremated.
