This year Russia will celebrate the 63rd anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over the Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War. The purpose of Our Victory project launched by Sokolniki MEC is to support and assist the veterans and express our gratitude for their bravery and courage. The project’s motto is, “Nobody is forgotten, and nothing is forgotten.”

Our Veterans project seeks to secure stronger ties between generations.
