Now we know the name of one brave defender of Mogilev. Mortal remains and pieces of personal belongings of the Red Army’s soldier from Chelyabinsk region Semion Fedorov were found at the forest near Kadino village of Mogilev district. Specialists also found Fedorov’s waist belt, pieces of cartridge pouch, a water bottle and a spool of thread.
During the last 25 years mortal remains of 38 soldiers have been found in this forest; only the names of 5 of them are known. In 1941 it was the place where the 110 rifle battalion and the 20 corps of the Red Army were encircled after the break-through of Mogilev defence. No one survived at that terrible battle.
Semion Fedorov will be reburied at Buinichi Field.
