Monument to the Defenders of the Fatherland

The monument was erected in memory of Pridnestrovian people who died defending the Republic in 1992, and the Afghan warriors who died in the line of duty. The monument was opened on August 1, 2017, on the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow for the fallen defenders of Pridnestrovie. During an armed conflict with Moldova in 1992, defending the Republic, 31 people from Rybnitsa were killed. From 1979 to 1989, 54 people from Pridnestrovie died heroes during the Afghan war. 9 people of Rybnitsa were among them. Money for the construction of the monument were raised by the institutions of the city and citizens. On the eight-meter stele lined with granite, there are the sign of the Battle Brotherhood, a laurel branch and the inscription «Eternal Glory». Along the perimeter of the monument, 40 memorial plates with the names of the dead heroes are installed.
