Activists Discover Shells From NKVD Revolver In Kurapaty

The participants of the excavations in the Kurapaty stove showed the horrid findings.

Journalist Dzianis Ivashyn posted on Facebook the photos of the shells from a revolver of the ''Nagan'' system (used by the NKVD) of 7.62×38 mm, and the ''Mauzer'' gun of the caliber 7.63х25 mm.

The photo with the shell was also published by Deputy Chairman of the movement For Freedom Yury Meliashkevich.

On October 15, workers on excavators arrived to the Kurapaty stove and started digging tranches for the construction of the water drainage system. The activists stopped the works as they believed that no special equipment should be applied there.

Today, the activists gathered at 9 a.m. to meet with the people from the sculpture factory, who will install the memorial shield at the so-called Calvary, as well as with the archeologists conducting the rescuing works.
