The site has collected video memories, published letters of the war years, poems by veterans, articles and books about the war.

A project has been launched on “Word of the Soldier of Victory”… Here are collected the memoirs of the Great Patriotic War veterans who now live in Moscow. Users can read their biography, view photos and videos.

“76 years separate us from May 9, 1945. A whole life given to us by front-line soldiers and home front workers. Much water has flowed under the bridge since then, and today the great-grandchildren of the Victory soldiers go to school. But although time is inexorable, diehard front-line soldiers still live among us, the “youngest” of whom is over 90 years old. As part of the “Word of the Soldier of Victory” project, we want to record their voices in order to preserve for posterity the memories of the heroes of the most difficult and most just war that our people have ever waged, “wrote in

Sergey Sobyanin on his blog.

The veterans told how they got to the front, where they fought and where they met Victory, as well as what they did after the war. Also, with the permission of the authors, letters of the war years, poems of veterans, articles and books about the war were published.
