Vladimir Putin promised to hold National celebrations in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory. Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote about this in a telegram to participants of the opening of the “memory Watch”campaign.
This year, the celebrations were postponed because of the coronavirus, Putin recalled. However, he expressed confidence that the” Immortal regiment”, the military parade, meetings with veterans, and other significant Patriotic events will be held in the future. According to the head of state, he is confident that the “Search movement of Russia” will take an active part in this.
The President stressed that search engines have become a unique phenomenon in the life of Russia. They “work in field expeditions, painstakingly work in archives, bit by bit restore frontline destinies, return lost pages of family stories, form priceless databases about participants of the great Patriotic war,” the telegram says. In addition, in the current difficult period, they help people on a par with volunteers. Putin thanked them and wished them success.
On April 16, at a meeting with permanent members of the security Council, Putin said that preparations for the Victory day parade on may 9 should be postponed because of the risks associated with the spread of coronavirus in Russia. All Victory Day celebrations will also be postponed. Preparations have already begun, but the risks are too high, he said.
