TO THE VICTORY DAY CELEBRATION ON MAY 9, 2019

We commemorate the Victory Day on the 9th of May. This is the date of the unconditional capitulation of Nazi Germany in the war. It is safe to say that there is no family in Russia, which was not affected by the war; most of us lost our parents and grandparents to it. That is why, World War II is not just a major armed conflict, this is a personal tragedy for most of us. We take pride in being the heirs of our heroic people, who fought selflessly to protect the Homeland and secure the world from the atrocities of Nazism for generations to come.
