On the territory of Volgograd region began a new season for “black archeologists”.
Excavations along the two-kilometer road Vertyachiy-Pansino leave no doubts here, next to the former crossing of the don, worked “black diggers”. Carelessly dug fighting positions scattered rusty ammunition, but the most important bones of soldiers, broken shovels, broken legs “black archeologists”, told IA “Height 102” journalists Victoria ulianenko and Alexey Serova.
Spring is the traditional time for search teams: the ground is still moist and lends itself well to excavation. But before the official search engines from Volgograd to the battlefields overlook the so-called “black archeologists”. After them on the former battlefields remain dead hundreds of remains of soldiers.

In the Volgograd region are still unknown hundreds of miles of the Stalingrad front. Here, after fierce fighting, sometimes in the same trench, are interspersed Soviet soldiers and Wehrmacht soldiers. On this site the account killed tens of thousands on both sides.
Svetlanarussia, Deputy Director of the Museum-panorama “Stalingrad battle”, says: “the Plot of don, Peskovatka-Vertyachiy, this is the place where the don comes near the Volga river, so strategically on the direction of the heavy fighting in August’ 42. Here crossed and our troops, retreating to Stalingrad, don, here crossed by German troops. Moreover, if it is defensive, then in the majority are the missing people”. Places of fierce fighting – the Klondike for the looters, who are only interested in what you can sell – awards, insignia, gold (crucifix, wedding rings and even dental fillings) and of course, weapons. The remains of soldiers in this case is just an afterthought, which is easy to get rid of, put aside. According to police, more than 70 percent of weapons found during the great Patriotic suitable for shooting.
And often old gun shooting again. More dangerous ammunition. In rusty shells TNT does not lose its properties. Historians, police, military declare with one voice about the need to change the order of excavation even for “white” – legal search engines. One option is to create special units at the Ministry of Defence.
