As part of commemorative events dedicated to the Day of Memory and Mourning, servicemen of the guard of honor company lit a lamp from the Eternal Flame from the Tomb of the Unknown and delivered it to the Main Church of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

Servicemen from all military districts will deliver a particle of the Eternal Flame from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to the monuments of military glory, as well as to the places of fraternal burials at the points of deployment of troops.

The Day of Remembrance and Sorrow is the day of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. At dawn on June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union without declaring war. 2021 marks 80 years since the beginning of one of the bloodiest wars in history.

For the solemn ceremony and transportation of a particle of the Eternal Flame, domestic specialists from the joint-stock company “MOSGAZ” have developed and manufactured unique equipment that ensures its safety: a portable gas burner device for transporting the flame, torches for transferring the flame to the memorial, functioning stably in any weather, as well as devices, which are able to ensure the safety of the particles of the Eternal Flame on board the aircraft.
