Defying junta’s ban, Kharkov veterans march under red banners

October 28: Despite the ban on “symbols of the totalitarian regime,” Kharkov veterans came to mark the anniversary of Ukraine’s liberation from the Nazis under red banners. 

These photographs were published by Gennady Makarov, head of the public organization “For Cultural and Linguistic Equality.” 

“We laid a wreath at the Memorial of Glory, Colonel Gennady Loboda made a solemn speech, and then we observed a minute of silence for all those who died in World War II … 

“Along with us were the banners of the Armed Forces of the USSR, the Banner of Victory, one of the banners of the divisions that liberated Kharkov on August 23, 1943, as well as the standard of the Union of Soviet Officers,” said Makarov.
