The swords correspond to the standard of bladed weapons, a dedicatory inscription and vegetable ornament are carved on the blade on one side, and the phrase from the movie “Alexander Nevsky” – “Who comes to us with a sword, he will perish by the sword” – on the other side.

“On all-metal scabbards are engraved the Order of Victory and portraits of Russian commanders. The weight of each sword is 4.5 kilograms, the length of the blade – one meter, and the hilt – 20 centimeters”, – told the press service of the regional administration.
