Yekaterinburg honors Ural Volunteer Tank Corps
The ceremony was held at the Railway Station Square and was dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the UDTK, Ekburg.ru reports.
During the Great Patriotic War, the Urals workforce originated the idea of a tank corps. Workers made everything from uniform buttons to tanks, purchasing materials with their own money. The accomplishment was seen as mass labor heroism. On March 11, 1943, the Ural tankers were dubbed the "X Urals Volunteer Guard Tank Corps."
The Ural volunteer military received the Order of the Red Banner and Suvorov and Kutuzov II degree. It accumulated 54 combat medals and 27 soldiers became full body Cavaliers of Glory. Thirty-eight guardsmen were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, according to Ekburg.ru.
The monument was erected in 1962 in a solemn ceremony. It is made of granite and features figures of workers and soldiers working together.
