Remains of five Soviet citizens were buried at the cemetery of Leuven (Flemish Brabant province). They died, presumably, in German captivity.
There is a memorial monument on the burial made of marble plates having an inscription in Russian, French and Dutch: “In honor of the Soviet soldiers who died in Leuven. 1941–1944”. The names of the dead are engraved on one of the marble plates.

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that spelling of the names, surnames and places of birth of Soviet citizens buried in Belgium may be distorted due to the fact that they are quite often written only in Flemish and French in registration books and on monuments.
We thank the Brussels-Belgian Archdiocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, the organizations of Russian compatriots and Russian foreign institutions accredited in Belgium for providing photos and their efforts to preserve the memory of the heroism of the Soviet soldiers who fell in the Great Patriotic War.
The Embassy will be grateful for providing any information and photos of Soviet military graves of the Second World War in Belgium and the ceremonies held on them. Please send material to the email address of the Embassy firstname.lastname@example.org with the note «War Graves».
