The Russians are also burying their dead as the conflict continues

In the Stavropol cemetery there is a new line of graves.

The mountains of the cold land are covered with a sea of ​​flowers. Military banners with the symbols of elite Russian units decorate the graves and flutter in the wind.

On the wooden crosses are fixed pictures of soldiers, their names and the date of their death.

The soldiers buried here lost their lives after February 24, when President Putin’s “special military operation” began in Ukraine.
