    In the soviet monument written
    2 mail 1945 here is 28 soviet soldiers who gave their lives when town Triest was liberated,
    but a couple of names looks to me more like a Serbian?- Natochi, Pist,Padobri and one Bulgarian? -Irokov. And only 9 lastnames is looks to be a Russian, other is Ukrainian, Uzbek, Azherbaidzhan, Armenian, to be correct they was all Soviet soldiers

    Hello Dim,

    problem is that Red Army never came here. And fightings ended on 2,3 of may 1945.
    There were anyway russians and other soviets fighting together with Tito's partisans. I sent this picture to some historians in Moskow, because they were interested in doing some researches, and it seems they weren't in fact soldiers, at least not for Russia.

    I can tell you, Irokov is not at all Bulgarian. But also finding Bulgarian names in Russian lists is not unusual - there were some /ok I'll miss the word / commies who fled to the USSR and fought in Spain and later in Europe. Actually many Bulgarian political emigrants suddenly died in 1937 /of course, this has nothing to do with Stalin's activities /, but some survived even the WW2 to return as Generals to Bulgaria /after left it as Traitors/. And also, there were and still are lots of ethnic Bulgarians in Russia and the former USSR. The old Bulgarians, who were there long before the Russians, have mostly lost the names due to the centuries and the islam that was accepted by many. But the 19th c. Russo-Turkish wars brought many Bulgarians to Russia /some voluntary following the retreating Russian armies, some dragged in order to settle parts of the Russian empire/ and their descendants were taken into the Red Army, as ordinary Russians.

    The guys buried here are those probably involved in a terroristic attack to german Soldatenheim, where they put a bomb while the soldiers were having lunch. Many were killed, including italian civilians. As a result, germans picked up political prisoners from the jail, executed and hang them on the inner and outer side of the Soldatenheim.

    Here is some documents from Russian archive about the soviet citizens KIA in Italy. The lists shows the places where they are burried, plus the list of the partisans who fought in Italy. I did not share all of them, due the huge quantity of the files
