Battlefield relics.

Attention WW2 collectors and  tourists!

The Stalingrad-info team would like to clarify a number of issues concerning battlefield search excursions.

1) Russian Federal law prohibits the unlawful excavation of historical artifacts and human remains in areas known to be battlefields of the Great Patriotic War. A special license is required for such work. Special licenses are provided to legitimate battlefield search teams after a year long probationary period. Every member of the search team is to have their documentation with them at all times.

2) Keep in mind that if you are crossing the Russian border, all items in your possession may be confiscated and in following you will be interrogated as to the origins of the items.

3) Our battlefield search teams are involved in the location and excavation of SOVIET soldiers only.
In the case that the teams find the remains of German soldiers, any possible means of identification such as a soldier's ID tags, should be sent to the WASt Archive in Germany. Any personal items should be stored until  they can be given over to the proper German authorities.

PLEASE DO NOT TURN OUR HISTORIC BATTLEFIELDS INTO PLACES OF UNLAWFUL ACTIVITY!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS MATTER.

The STALINGRAD-INFO team.

Grinning Russian youngsters strut around the farming village carrying a heavy load of German trophies-ammunition belts, machine guns and rifles they have gathered in the battlefields outside Stalingrad.
