Mother Russia /Volgograd Russia

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The southern Russian city of Volgograd was once known as Stalingrad.  In the late 1942 and early 1943, the city on the Volga River was the site of a terrible battle between Nazi Germany and the Red Army which marked the turning point of World War II.  The most prominent site in the city is the statue of Mother Russia, erected to commemorate the hundreds of thousands of Red Army soldiers and civilians who died there.  This drone video captures the immensity of the statue and the losses that led to its construction.
