A ceremony of memory and mourning was held on Poklonnaya Hill in Moscow

“The attitude towards Victory Day today is an important test of humanity and dignity,” says Colonel-General Viktor Shlemin, deputy director of the FSO.

On the fronts of the special military operation, employees of the center for special communications and information also died.

“And in our days there are heroes who are ready to die, but not to take off their cross,” Father Grigory, rector of the garrison church of the special communications units, noted with feeling. And fighting spirit is strengthened at the front by faith and prayer. There are no unbelievers in the trenches.”

The names of these heroes are remembered in prayers, but the general public does not recognize many of them. Like the circumstances of death. This is the nature of their service. Even the name of a senior lieutenant – a member of the SVO, who was awarded the Suvorov medal, who spoke at the ceremony. However, there is a time for everything – when this officer on this very Alley of Memory becomes a gray-haired veteran, we will learn more about his exploits. In the meantime, he himself thanked the veterans, noting how necessary and important their support to young people is now.

“Every year, there are, unfortunately, less and less participants in the Great Patriotic War,” said Lieutenant-General Viktor Tarasov, chairman of the All-Russian Public Organization of Veterans of State Security Bodies of Justice. “In 2022, we had 211 veterans of the Great Patriotic War. Today there are 63 of them left. But this is the golden fund of our veteran organization.”

But the front-line soldiers worried about a worthy change in time. One and a half hundred cadets and members of the Yunarmiya led the procession of the Immortal Regiment, performed a bright musical composition. And FSO special class cadet Liza Bublyas, with touching childlike determination, assured: “We will not let you down! We feel like the heirs of those who defeated the knight dogs on Lake Peipsi, and in all subsequent battles where the victory was ours. And so it will be: we we will win.”
