People! While your hearts beat, – remember!
What price for your joy was paid, – remember!
Sending your song to the skies, – remember!
Those who will never sing again, – remember!
Tell your children about them so that they, too, remembered!
And tell the children of your children about them so that they, too, remembered!
(by Robert Rozhdestvensky)
We remember the feats of our soldiers during the Great Patriotic War. We mourn about those who never returned from the fields of battle. For five years, Russian people have been participating in the St. George Ribbon campaign as a tribute to the memory of the fallen and as a mark of respect to those who did return from the war. We remember the great feat of our country!
