October 25 marks 75 years since liberation of Dnepropetrovsk from the Nazi invaders


October 25 marks 75 years since liberation of Dnepropetrovsk from the Nazi invaders. The events of World War II occupy a special place in the history of the Ukrainian people. The participants of the war, the bearers of its historical memory, those who fought with arms in their hands, studied, worked and restored the country, are still alive. For 1225 days and nights Ukraine was the scene of violent, bloody battles. The liberation of Dnepropetrovsk and the region was a part of the great summer offensive of the Red Army in 1943. The troops of the Steppe and South-Western fronts were the first to enter the territory of our region in September. Now the Soviet troops forced a difficult natural barrier - the Dnieper. The Nazis turned the defenses on the right bank of the Dnieper into the so-called "Eastern European strength bank". The river's banks were equipped with pillboxes, bunkers, artillery positions, several rows of trenches, wire barriers and anti-tank ditches. The resistance of the enemy was eventually broken and the troops of the 3rd Ukrainian Front liberated Dnepropetrovsk on October 25. The memory of the war is spiritual and historical heritage of our people and raises them to the level of other peoples who actively created the history.
