Dedicated at the Kremlin Wall in December 1966, the monument contains the remains of the unknown soldiers killed during World War II at the Battle of Moscow in 1941. In front of the tombstone, there is a five-pointed star in a square pit with a eternal flame and a bronze plaque inscription saying "Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal". To the left of the tomb, there is a granite wall with an inlay saying "1941 - To Those Who Have Fallen For The Motherland - 1945". To the right of the tomb, there is a granite alley made plates of porphyry (grained crystals) from the country's hero cities. A continuous Guard of Honour patrols at the tomb in memory to the People's Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941 to 1945.
