To date, more than 1,000 veterans are among us. Our government and society continue to cherish the memory of servicemen who died performing a great mission, respect and honor all veterans, as well as veterans of the Great Patriotic War and improve their living conditions. This year, veterans who participated in World War II were awarded with cash prizes, their homes were repaired, and they were given the opportunity to travel free to the countries in which they served.

They want peace, freedom and prosperity for our Motherland. And a nation that respects the older generation and supports young people will never fail.
