In Krasnoyarsk, from the Victory Memorial, the International Yunarmeysky patriotic auto march “On the Roads of Siberian Glory. Krasnoyarsk – Brest 2021 “. And on the eve of the participants of the rally, the collective of the electrochemical plant “Rosatom” and representatives of the Zelenogorsk city administration conducted them. The participants of the action were instructed to bring a piece of the Eternal Flame from the hero-city of Brest, and the rector of the Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov, Father Andrei, donated an icon of the Siberian saint, Great Martyr Dmitry Apansky to Orthodox churches on the way.

80 years ago, on June 22, 1941, the USSR entered the largest war in the history of mankind. On this day, without declaring war, an army of German fascist troops invaded across the borders of our country, and the Great Patriotic War began. To honor the memory of the heroic ancestors who rebuffed the fascist troops, the regional branch of the Youth Army of the Krasnoyarsk Territory with like-minded people went to the International Youth Army patriotic auto march “Roads of Siberian Glory”.

The plans of the column include visiting hero cities, cities of military glory, dozens of patriotic actions and the end point – the Brest Fortress – a legendary stronghold that was the first to defend the borders of our Motherland and was subjected to a massive enemy attack.

The defense of the Brest Fortress became a symbol of fortitude, courage and military valor. And today the descendants of the Siberian regiments that defended Moscow in 1941, with a 20-meter copy of the Victory Banner, are sent to the western borders of the Union State to honor the memory of the defenders of the Fatherland.

The Victory Banner is the official symbol of the Victory of the Soviet people and its Armed Forces over Nazi Germany.

Within the framework of the international project “Youth Army – from Victory to Victories!” organized in 2018–2019 together with the All-Russian public organization “Combat Brotherhood” and the Volunteer Company “Combat Brotherhood”, the regional branch of the Youth Army of the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Vladimir Region, a copy of the Victory Banner was deployed in many cities of Russia – from the Crimean Peninsula to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. On June 22, on the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the organizers intend to unfold the Victory Banner and the largest St. George ribbon at the walls of the Brest Fortress.

Participants of the regional branch of the All-Russian children’s and youth military-patriotic public movement “Yunarmiya” of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, representatives of the Regional Military Commissariat, the search squad “Memory” of school No. 163 and public organizations of the region went to the rally. As part of the ceremony, flowers will be laid in memory of the fallen compatriots who rebuffed the Nazi invaders, and a large-scale 20-meter copy of the Victory Banner will be unfolded.

The auto-march is carried out with the direct participation of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
