Actions to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War will be held in Russia

On June 22, Russia and other countries celebrate the eightieth anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

In many regions, the events began at four in the morning: at this time in 1941, Nazi troops invaded the territory of the USSR. Among the planned actions are the “Candle of Memory” and “Rays of Victory”, as well as concerts, processions and ceremonies for the burial of the remains of soldiers.

In a number of regions, the number of participants in celebrations is limited due to the spread of coronavirus infection.

On this day, Russian President Vladimir Putin will lay a wreath at the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Alexander Garden, the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Commemorative events will also take place in Germany. Thus, the President of the Federal Republic of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier will lay a wreath at the Soviet military cemetery in the Pankow district in Berlin. In addition, a wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the memorial in the Tiergarten park, and will be attended by Russian diplomats.
