Russia Today: Memorial erected to Hungarian invaders

Russia Today: Memorial erected to Hungarian invaders

During World War Two, central Russia was the scene of fierce battles between home troops and Nazi-led invaders. Among Germany’s allies were around 200,000 Hungarian soldiers - more than half of whom died in the fighting. In 2003, federal authorities in the Voronezh region decided to bury remains found over a 60-year period at one memorial.
