The memorial has the form of a 25 meters high bronze soldier figure installed on a 10 meters high artificial hill. This design was chosen in an international creative competition.
The monument commemorates the warriors who took down Hitler's Army Group Center. Their defensive and offensive operations led to a pivotal moment when the Red Army gained an advantage on the entire Soviet-German frontline.
The unveiling of the memorial coincides with a full-scale launch of the LUKOIL fuel station located in the immediate vicinity.
