This tradition springs from the far Soviet years: Tbilisi used to be proud then of their fellow countrymen who made the big politics of the Soviet Union and tried to take the leading position among the former brotherly republics. At that time, the competition went on in the field of culture and education. Georgia was a true leader in providing stage favorites.

On the whole, the memorial will bear the names of 3500 people", - the Georgian agencies inform. Generally speaking, the authorities declared the construction of a memorial in honor of those who fought against Russia.
