The remains of four Soviet soldiers who died during the Great Patriotic War have been buried in Finland, TASS reports. According to Russian diplomats, the reburial ceremony took place last weekend. The deceased were prisoners of a German concentration camp in Lapland.
The remains were found last summer while excavating a site near the Siida Museum.
The funeral ceremony was held at the cemetery of Ivalo. Representatives of townauthorities, clergy, members of the Finland-Russia society and the museum's management took part in it.
A monument to a Soviet pilot who died during the war with the Finns was erected in Finland last summer. The pilot died during a combat mission in early 1940.
