On June 21, on the eve of the Day of National Remembrance of the Victims of the Great Patriotic War, a flower-laying ceremony was held at the Rzhev Memorial to the Soviet Soldier. The event was attended by a delegation of the Central Council of Veterans of the EMERCOM of Russia, as well as veterans and personnel of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Tver region.

“On the anniversary of the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, we honor the memory of hundreds of thousands of Soviet soldiers who died on the holy land of Rzhev. It is very exciting for us, the heirs of the great winners, to be here, ”said Shamsutdin Dagirov, Chairman of the Central Council of Veterans of the department.

The convoy column solemnly marched to the place of the laying of flowers, where the personnel paid tribute to the memory of the Red Army soldiers who died during the war. Veteran EMERCOM of Russia Oleg Nepryakhin read the author’s poem “Dedication to the Fallen near Rzhev” and sang the song “Immortal Regiment” by Andrey Igolkin.

During the event, new special equipment was handed over to the local fire and rescue garrison: fire trucks were received by fire and rescue unit No. 12, and a fire engine pump was received by a voluntary fire brigade.
