  • Very interesting object of ICC of Belarus. Once on the "land" of the temple (on the site of the fraternal burial of Russian soldiers killed in battle 01 (13). 11.1812 between the troops of the 3rd Western RI and the Polish-Lithuanian squad of F. Kosetsky of the Great Army of Napoleon) was a memorial sign in memory of the participants and Events of the Patriotic War of 1812 year. The mini-monument was built for the 100-year anniversary, stood for about 7 years, the stele was collapsed already in 1919, in such (Obrushennom form) a commemorative sign existed until 1940. The granite base of the monument in the mid-50s was moved to the columns and today it is installed "a fool" of the Chief-Lenin. The church was closed in 1965, and the traces of the graves were completely destroyed.
