Photographer's Note

This memorial to the Soviet Soldiers, who liberated Kharkiv from occupation on Aug. 23 1943. It was erected in 1981 at the "August 23" Street (near the intersection with Lenin’s Avenue), among the residential area, called Pavlove Pole (Paul’s Field). Analogously to "Alyosha", the name of another WW II memorial in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, this one has popular name "Pavlusha".

The ad of "Buntar" ("Rebel") magazine on the wall at the left-hand part of the picture for certain is inappropriate for this deeply esteemed place. Fortunately, when I was there several months later, there were no commercial ads in the vicinity of the memorial.
