From 1994 to 1995 the Volksbund established this cemetery on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany in cooperation with the "Military memorial Sites". Association is responsible for the realization of the war graves agreement on behalf of the Russian Federation.

On 15th May 1999, the cemetery was opened to the public.
