Nazran. Monument of Memory and Glory

The Monument of Memory and Glory is a large memorial complex in Ingushetia. It is dedicated to the important commemoration of solemn and tragic events in the history of the republic.

The monument has become not only the ‘hallmark’ of the republic, but also the symbol of love for the motherland, fortitude and courage of the people of Ingushetia.

On the day of the opening of the complex on June 9th 2012, the head of the Republic of Ingushetia, Yunus-bek Yevkurov, said: "Today, the Monument of Memory and Glory of Ingushetia is being opened. It is an historical monument, all the events that are associated with the history of Ingushetia as a part of Russia are reflected in it. More than two hundred years ago we took an oath of allegiance to our country and have always remained faithful to it.  The names of those who heroically defended the independence of our great country Russia are immortalized in the Monument of Memory. The younger generation should know their names and be proud of their great past. There are tragic and heroic pages in the history of the Ingush people. This monument is a reminder of these events both for the elderly and the younger generations. We must remember and not forget, and move forward with our heads held high.’’
