Dear compatriots! I congratulate you on the Great Victory Day!

Every spring we remember with tears in our eyes our fathers and grandfathers, who died in the Great Patriotic War in 1945. From generation to generation, this holiday is gradually turning from a victory over fascism into a symbol of victory for good. Year after year, by celebrating this day, we pass on to our children and grandchildren how hard the hardships and burdens of war are to bear.

That war was won by the multinational people of the Soviet Union. And today we stand up for peace and international harmony throughout the world!

No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten.

I would like to draw your attention. Almost a month ago, on April 13, a monument to the hero Cholponbai Tuleberdiyev was unveiled. He laid his chest on an embrasure and covered a machine gun with his breast. It was on August 6, 1942 near Voronezh on the bank of the Don river. The guy was 20 years old! He went off to war after 7th class. And this year we mark his 100th anniversary with sadness. But he could meet his girlfriend, become a father, leave his children and grandchildren!

Once again I congratulate you on the Great Victory Day.
Eternal glory to the victors!
