MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union – the bloodiest war in history began. For four long years of the Great Patriotic War, only the Vologda Oblast lost 420 thousand people at the front and in the rear, according to updated data.
In memory of those who sacrificed their own lives for the freedom and independence of our Motherland, representatives of public associations, politicians, rescuers and cadets of the VIPE of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia gathered in Vologda at the monument “Eternal Flame of Glory”.
Throughout the night, the protesters took turns keeping watch of Memory at the memorial. At four in the morning, exactly at this time 80 years ago, the enemy struck the first blows, volunteers lit lamps, laid out a fiery picture “420,000. Remember” and laid flowers.
