The personnel of the Pskov Guards Airborne Assault Formation, together with representatives of veterans’ organizations, the administrations of the Pskov region and the city of Pskov, took part in the solemn ceremony of laying the Garland of memory at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier memorial.

Before the laying of the garland began, Priest Alexander Tsyganov, assistant commander of the Black Sea Airborne Assault Regiment for work with believers, performed the funeral litiya.

Then a guard of honor placed the Garland of memory at the memorial. On behalf of the residents of the Pskov region and the servicemen of the Pskov territorial garrison, flowers were laid at the memorial with the eternal flame: the acting governor of the region Vera Emelyanova, the deputy mayor of the city Vladimir Vorobiev and the guard lieutenant colonel Vladimir Zhilis.

At the end of the flower-laying ceremony, a minute of silence was announced, and the orchestra of the Pskov Airborne Forces sang the Anthem of the Russian Federation.

Despite the unfavorable weather, the event was attended by a large number of residents of Pskov, who came to the sounds of the songs of the war years that sounded at the memorial.
