The portrait of the leader of the Youth Army adorned Shkolnaya Street, one of the busiest in the city. Next to it is the Russian State Archive of Film and Photo Documents and the Memorial to the Factory Workers Who Died in the Great Patriotic War. Graffiti is painted on various surfaces: buildings, walls and bridge supports, this time the organizers found an equally original place for an art object – an ordinary transformer substation turned into a work of art in a matter of hours.
“I know that the Graffiti of Victory project is very popular among the Yunarmeys,” said Nikita Nagorny, head of the movement’s headquarters. – More than two dozen compositions have already appeared throughout Russia – these are images of veterans and activists of the Youth Army who contributed to its development. Connecting young people with the generation of winners is the main goal of the patriotic action. Thanks to these art objects, descendants will remember the heroes. This time they decided to paint my portrait. This is an honor for me. My merits are seen and recognized! I tried, I won a gold medal for our country. I want to be an example for the guys, I want to motivate them so that they go in for sports, be active and be useful. “
