The Russian military together with the Syrians celebrated the 75th anniversary of Syrian independence at the Khmeimim airbase.
About this in a new material “Russian Spring” from the Syrian Arab Republic.
Every year on April 17, Syria celebrates one of its main state and national holidays – Independence Day. This date is associated with the withdrawal of all French troops from Syria in 1946.
It was decided to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the independence of the Syrian Arab Republic at the Russian Khmeimim airbase. And with a concert for the Russian military and Syrian guests of honor, artists Sergei Volchkov, Ruslan Alekhno and the art group “Soprano Turetsky” specially flew in.
Singer Ruslan Alekhno noted that the Russian Khmeimim airbase has significantly increased after his visit to Syria in 2015: “A concert hall is being built at the airbase and it will be an honor for us to perform in a new 450-seat concert hall,” he said.
Laureate of international competitions Sergei Volchkov in Syria for the first time: “I want to be the successor not only of Russian music, but also to do some things that today, perhaps, will raise the spirits and morale of the officers. I selected songs that are very suitable for the present day, ”said Volchkov.
Lieutenant General Alexander Chaiko, Commander of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria, noted that the Russian and Syrian military continue to fight international terrorism together.
“Here in Syria we feel like brothers with the Syrian people. But thanks to our artists, we feel closer to our Motherland. The Great Patriotic War showed that only the morale of a soldier is able to defend the Motherland. The performance of the artists is an impetus for the entire team, not only the Russian, but also the Syrian soldier, to the final point, to victory in this difficult work, “he said.
Syrian Defense Minister Ali Abdullah Ayub, who attended the concert, also spoke about the brotherhood of peoples:
“I express my gratitude to the command of the grouping of troops of the armed forces of the Russian Federation in Syria for the attention you paid to our national holiday. The initiative of the Russian leadership to celebrate our state holiday at the Khmeimim airbase confirms the depth of our fraternal relations and their strength. Today we celebrate this great holiday together and together we are fighting international terrorism – armed bandit formations that infringe on the integrity of our country, ”said a senior officer of the Syrian Arab Army.
The head of the military department also suggested that Syrian artists should take part in the next concert at the Khmeimim airbase, along with the Russian ones.
