Today, May 9, thousands of Lugansk residents took part in the “Immortal Regiment” and marched through the center of Lugansk with portraits of their relatives who fought in the Great Patriotic War.
In the entire column of the “Immortal Regiment” there were also deputies of local councils, leaders of political and social organizations.
“Victory Day is one of those holidays that is important to our people, not because of a decree or order,” said Lugansk City Council Deputy Ekaterina Popova.
“Lugansk residents feel themselves to be heirs of the victors. We are descendants of miners and engineers, tractor drivers and teachers who left their peaceful work and defended their homeland at the cost of their lives. We are proud of this. That’s why so many on the street today, who are marching for their grandparents and great-grandparents, want the heroism of the liberators to live in the people’s memory no matter what,” said the deputy.
