MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
On the territory of the museum complex “Memory Road” and the Main Church of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for the first time took place the ecological action “Earth Hour”. The lighting of the complex at 20:30 was completely turned off for one hour.
The ecological action “Earth Hour” in the territory of the Russian Federation has been held annually for 13 years. The action is symbolic. It aims to draw attention to a responsible attitude towards the planet and natural resources.
During the action, millions of people around the world turn off their lights and household appliances, and tens of thousands of world famous buildings and landmarks turn off their lights.
The exposition of the Museum “Road of Memory” tells in detail about each of the 1418 days of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. Here you can not only view the exhibits, but also experience the heroic path from the first moments of tragic events to the triumphant entry of the Soviet army into Berlin.
174 pedestals with 15,000 earth cartridges from the burial places of soldiers from more than 44 countries are installed along the museum’s galleries. The main temple of the Russian Armed Forces and the sculptural composition “To Mothers of Winners” are also located on the territory. The image is based on a grieving female figure hiding an eternally burning candle – a symbol of love and memory.
