The first monument has been erected on the Great Voronezh Ecological Trail for the 75th anniversary of the Victory. This was reported on the website of the tourist route on Monday, May 25.

The sculpture was dedicated to the image of a female military doctor. The author of the monument was Victor Dorovskoi, a master of woodcarving. Nearby stands a cross under which lies the remains of Maria Plutakhina. According to some historians, she could have been a physician and died in the battles for Voronezh in 1942. Activists are planning to place four more sculptural groups on the route as well as more than 100 other objects.

In December 2019, Governor of the Voronezh Region Alexander Gusev ordered to allocate 9 million rubles for the implementation of this project.
