On the eve of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, employees of the branch “Rosseti Centre Belgorodenergo” connected up-to-date architectural lighting of the “Soldier-Liberator” monument in Borisovka and provided lighting of the “Children of War” monument in Valuyki.
The monument in Borisovka was erected on the grave of an unknown soldier in 1977. On 7 August 2015, on the day of the 72nd anniversary of the liberation of the settlement of Borisovka from Nazi invaders, the remains of 11 soldiers, who died during the Great Patriotic War, were reburied at the monument.
This year, the power engineers decided to modernize the lighting of the memorial. Electricians at the Borisovskiy Distribution Zone replaced the old yellow street lighting fixtures with LEDs with the capability to control the light flux, installed a control cabinet for architectural lighting, which will allow remote control of the lighting at night. The branch carried out similar work in Borisovka in the Park of Military Glory, at the monument “The Grieving Mother” and the Eternal Flame, located in the central part of the settlement.
Employees of the Valuysky Distribution Zone provided installation of outdoor lighting networks for the monument “Children of War”. A new monument depicting cuddling children will appear on the central Avenue of Heroes in Valuyki. The sketch was developed by Boris Sergienko, a teacher at the Belgorod State Institute of Arts and Culture. The monument will be cast in bronze. And it will be illuminated by 4 LED lighting fixtures. This is the first memorial in the region to perpetuate the grief and suffering of the little witnesses of that historical period.
“Our company has been patronizing monuments and memorials for many years, regularly helping to renew, illuminate and equip them. Thus, we pay tribute and memory to all those who fought for the freedom of the Fatherland, preserve it for future generations,” stressed Igor Makovskiy, General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region.
