This year sees the 77th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in 1945. A meeting of the local government officials devoted to celebration of the 77th anniversary since victory in the Great Patriotic War was held in Vologda on April 21.

May 9th is the main holiday of Russia as a victorious power. On this day Russian people will always honour the feat of heroism of war veterans and grieve for those who fell in action or were tortured to death.

This day unites all Russians with a memory of heroic deed of our grandfathers. This day remembers the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II and honours almost twenty seven million Soviet citizens that were killed and died of wounds, that were posted missing and were tortured in captivity and perished with hunger.

Residents from the Vologda Region took part in all the battles and military operations in different sectors of the battlefront showing heroism and selflessness.

A plan for holding the main celebratory events in 2022 includes the tradition of laying of flowers at military graves and memorials, St. George’s Ribbon campaign, the Immortal Regiment action, Garden of Remembrance International Campaign and other ways to mark the occasion.
