22 June 2020

«June 22 is the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow which marks the 79th anniversary of the start of the Great Patriotic War. On this day, in the summer of 1941 the most bloody and terrible war in the history of our country began, it claimed the lives of millions innocent people.

The memory of the horrors of the war is the main guarantee that humanity will not repeat them again.

On this day, I urge the whole world to honor the heroes who fell in the fight against fascism. I wish that the war never touched you and your families. Happiness, peace and love to every home!» the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova wrote on her Instagram page.
