To install a monument to the national feat was first proposed in 1942 году, but it did not happen in conditions of war time. About 194 mln roubles were collected from personal savings of citizens as well as from conducted community work days during 1970—1980 in order to erect a monumental memorial. Construction of memorial complex of Victory had been started in 1984: it was opened by the day of the 50th anniversary of Victory – May 9, 1995. The Eternal Light was set from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Aleksandrovsky Garden in ceremonial atmosphere at Poklonnaya Gora on April 30, 2010. The ceremony was closed with placement of the Guard of Honour formed by the cadets of Moscow Military Colleges Schools near the Light.
