The audience paid their respects to the dead of silence.

“Today we honor those who have defended the territorial integrity and sovereignty of our state. It is very difficult to pick up the words to express all the pain and gratitude to the people who have not hurt their most precious and invaluable life. We bow our heads in reverence and respect, grateful for the peaceful sky above our heads for those who stood by in the fight against the insidious aggressor, ”said Svetlana Shatalova.

We will remind that on August 23 this year the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky established in Ukraine the Day of Remembrance of Defenders of Ukraine, who died in the struggle for independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, which will be celebrated annually on August 29.
