In March 1921, the participants of a Peasant Uprising, about 300 inhabitants of Novo-Travnoe village, were shot without trial on the banks of the Dyatel river not far from Sinitsyna village. Relatives buried some of the executed in the village graveyard; the others were buried in the woods not far from the river bank. The burial site was marked by notches cut in the trees and the memory was kept alive by the villagers.

In 2006, a memorial was erected, a marble pillar with the depiction of a cross, on the bank of the river Dyatel where the execution took place. Three years later a wooden cross-golubets was placed on the burial site, with a board (see photo) reading, “Here lie buried the peasant rebels who were shot without a trial in March 1921 near the Sinitsyna village”.
