The Andra settlement was created in 1931 by dekulakized peasant families from the Urals and Siberia (Chelyabinsk, Sverdlovsk, Tyumen Regions) and from the Kuban. It continued to exist until the mid-1960s. The present settlement arose on the same site in 1982. The graveyard of the special settlement is on the high bank of the Andrinka river. The numbers of forced settlers buried there has not been established; some names are known. In 2003, thanks to the efforts of the settlers’ descendants, the Andra administration put up a commemorative cross with a plaque in the graveyard.
