There are no opponents here, we all are at the same side, the truth.
Concentrate on the topic.
Here a photo from the book Kenraalimotti
by Tauno Räisänen. (mentioned also here: viewtopic.php?p=1075295&highlight=#1075295
It might be approx at the same place as the "Cross of Sorrow" today ?
It's taken by Finns after the re-capture of the Lemetti area during the Continuation war.
Finns found the monument (and several others at the area) at the Rinteenvaara (North of Lemetti road crossing), at the place where Finnish troops had, during the Winter War buried over 600 fallen Soviets.
The Soviet erected monuments (as the on at the photo) had couple things in common:
-there were no names of the fallen
-there were no numbers how many fallen were buried
-the monument stones used were stolen tombstones from Finnish civilian graveyards
