The Supreme Council Deputy Sergey Vasiliev is of the same opinion. He told the participants of the rally about the participation of his grandfathers in the Great Patriotic War. The opportunity to see and communicate with veterans, unfortunately, remains only with current generations. The parliamentarian said that the significance of Victory to future generations, despite attempts to falsify history, is the main goal of the rally.
The military-patriotic rally “The Heirs of Victories” will take place not three days, as last year, but four, and will end on September 8. Another difference between the “The Heirs of Victories - 2019” is that the participants will have more opportunities to study various types of military art.
