Members of the Yunarmiya movement offer to go on a virtual tour, during which they tell about the defense of Sevastopol during the Great Patriotic War. The plot was prepared within the framework of the All-Russian literary competition “Two Captains”, which the main headquarters of the movement conducts jointly with the publishing house “Children’s Literature” with the support of the museum complex “Memory Road. 1418 Steps to Victory “.

“Today I learned about the courage and resilience of the sailors. The offensive on Sevastopol began in June 1941. The enemy tried to mine the exits from the bays of the water area of ​​the city. But the air defense of the naval base and ships repulsed the raid. The city was stormed several times, but not only the troops of the Red Army, but also the inhabitants of the city stood up to defend their land! ” – says Yegor Shikharev, whose voice sounds off-screen.

On June 7, 1942, the third assault on Sevastopol began. The enemy struck at the north of the city. The commanders and sailors tried to hold back the onslaught of the enemy, but the forces were not equal. The second defense of Sevastopol lasted 250 days and nights. The city fell into ruins. By May 1944, the city’s population had decreased to 3 thousand inhabitants. The losses of the Red Army amounted to over 150 thousand people. Sevastopol was liberated during the Crimean offensive operation, which was carried out on April 8 – May 12, 1944.

The video makes you think about what courage is …

“Within the framework of the project“ Two Captains ”, the Yunarmeys have already shot four videos – about the defenders of the Brest Fortress, about the feat of partisans and home front workers, as well as about the blockade of Leningrad. Now they have presented a short film about the defense of Sevastopol. Members of the movement are interested in the history of the Fatherland. The topics covered in the plots became the basis for the literary works and illustrations that we were waiting for for the competition. This year it is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of heroic battles and battles in the Great Patriotic War. The hearts of the Yunarmeys are touched by the dramatic stories of people who survived the terrible years, and the heroic deeds of the soldiers inspire them! ”Explained Nikita Nagorny, head of the General Staff of the Yunarmiya, three-time world champion, six-time European champion, Olympic silver medalist.

The submission of creative works for the “Two Captains” competition has already been completed. Works and illustrations went to the jury. Until the end of April, a special commission will determine the winners in three nominations “Best Story”, “Best Poetry” and “Best Illustration”. On April 19, online voting will begin, as a result of which it will be found out who will receive the People’s Choice Award.

The best authors will be awarded on June 1 in Moscow as part of the International Children’s Day. The works of the winners will be published on the official websites of VVPOD Yunarmiya and the publishing house “Children’s Literature”.
