In Surgut, the Armenian diaspora held a rally in memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War

Representatives of the Armenian national-cultural center "Ararat" paid tribute to the memory by laying flowers at the foot of the monument of Friendship of Nations, where the gallery of marshals of the Soviet Union representing two fraternal peoples is also located.
“The Friendship Monument was erected in 2015 and since then we have been holding celebrations here on May 9 every year,” says Ararat activist Grigory Grigoryan. “And I want to note that we are all in an irredeemable debt to those who gave their lives for the peaceful sky above us today. Our sacred duty is to pass on to the younger generation this memory of the terrible war, of those innumerable losses and of the feat of the people who defeated fascism. This memory should be passed on from generation to generation so that descendants will remember what war is, what grief it brings to the peoples. And the main thing is to know what price the grandfathers and great-grandfathers paid for the Victory. We are the generation who sees the WWII veterans alive, which means that we are the connecting thread of generations, a living memory that we must preserve and pass on to our children. "
