South Ossetia paid tribute to the memory of the participants of the Great Patriotic War


The saved world remembers ...

"A great symbol of the memory of the people ..." - under this name a solemn rally was held on the Alley of Glory of the Hero City of Tskhinval, timed to coincide with the next anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet people over the Nazi invaders.

“We remember those who laid down their heads on the fields in the Great Patriotic War. It seems that everything has already been told and laid out on the shelves, everything and everyone knows about these tragic events in the history of our Motherland. But each time new historical facts emerge, and every year we see our past in a new way ... ", - said the presenter of the meeting, teacher of Russian language and literature at the Lyceum of Arts in the capital of South Ossetia Rimma Plieva.

This year, only seven veterans of the Great Patriotic War were able to meet the Victory Parade in Tskhinval. Only four of them can take part in the celebrations. Plieva has noted that every year there are fewer and fewer participants in the great war.

“We must honor the memory of those who have left forever and hurry to those who are still alive to say that we will always remember their feat. The war ended long ago, but we must not betray the memory of those to whom the war crossed out the fate of loved ones, we must not forget those who did not return fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers. Each family has its own military history, its own ancestral memory and it is very important for all of us that our children and the children of our children remember the great battle, the great feat of the Soviet people. We must revive their memory by participating in the march Unfortunately, the day will come when the last soldier of the Great Patriotic War will go to heaven and join the ranks of the Immortal Regiment, "she said.

A holiday with tears in your eyes

South Ossetian President Anatoly Bibilov called May 9 a great holiday, a holiday with tears in his eyes. According to him, this day is overshadowed by millions of lives of the Red Army soldiers, officers, generals, civilians, children, women, old people.

"The Day of the Great Victory instills joy in the soul, but at the same time, the pain about the departed, about those who did not catch the holiday, who gave their lives for the Victory of justice, does not leave us," said the head of state.

Bibilov has noted with regret the fact that today, after several decades, they began to rewrite history, say that the Soviet Union did not play a special role, that the Soviet people did not achieve victory.

“Unfortunately, the policy aimed at changing the course of history and reducing the role of the great Soviet people bore fruit in the form of neo-fascism, which South Ossetia faced in the late 80s and early 90s. But the sons and grandchildren of our great veterans knew what they fought for, what they sacrificed their lives for. After all, it is impossible to disgrace the name of a veteran grandfather, a participant in the Great Patriotic War. They repeated the feat of their fathers and grandfathers, "he said.

The head of state noted the huge role of the Great Russia in the security of the Republic of South Ossetia. He recalled that today the security of South Ossetia is provided by the servicemen of the 4th military base, the Border Directorate of the FSB of Russia, who know how to keep the honor of their ancestors up to date.

"They carry out combat missions in the republic to ensure the security of the RSO, protect the citizens of Syria, ensure stability in Nagorno-Karabakh, etc. These servicemen are worthy of the blessed memory of their fathers and grandfathers - participants in the Great Patriotic War.

Happy Victory Day to you, goodness, peace and prosperity. I am sure that together we will be able to make our country prosperous, I am sure that the memory of the heroism of the Soviet people, our compatriots will always remain in our memory, "the President of South Ossetia wished.

In Memory - power ...

The festive event "And only memory is stronger than death" continued with the procession of the Immortal Regiment, the main characters of which were children. They, personifying the whole meaning of this event, passed with dignity with portraits of grandfathers and great-grandfathers, once again showing everyone the power of Memory. On the Walk of Fame, representatives of the growing generation in a theatrical performance to the tune of the great song "Cranes" showed a fragment of one of the battles of the Great Patriotic War.

Then the head of state Anatoly Bibilov, Russian Ambassador to South Ossetia Marat Kulakhmetov, heads of the executive and legislative branches of government, representatives of law enforcement agencies and security agencies of the Republic, the public and future defenders of the Fatherland took part in laying a garland of Glory at the Eternal Flame on the Alley of Heroes.
