|Kuzbass helped bring victory closer in a variety of ways. Hundreds of residents of the region went to the front, and several rifle divisions were formed in the capital of Kuzbass, including the 303rd and 376th Rifle divisions. In addition, the region provided the army with weapons, ammunition, coal, metal, and also treated wounded soldiers. It is also worth noting that in a difficult year for the country in 1941, more than 70 enterprises were evacuated to the territory of Kuzbass, and 35 of them were located in Kemerovo. Most of the evacuated production facilities after the victory remained on the territory of Kuzbass.|
