Victims of Stalin repressions remembered
The cedar cross is 12,5 meters tall and 8 meters wide and travels along the White Sea – Baltic Sea Canal – build by the hands of prisoners in Soviet times. It will eventually arrive at a site of a mass execution.
In another event linked to commemorating the victims, various artists, singers and human rights activists have gathered at what used to be a concentration camp in the distant Perm region. The commemoration highlights the issues of human solidarity and civil liberty.
