High Commissioner message on the Day of Memory and Grief

High Commissioner message on the Day of Memory and Grief

Dear friends,

Today we remember one of the most tragic dates in our history. On this day, June 22, 1941, the Great Patriotic War began.

Those who had gone through the war remembered every moment of it. They fought, despite the fear and pain, so that their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren could live in peace.

One and all, old and young, men, women and children fought on the battlefield and in the rear, making every effort to draw the Victory nearer.

No family managed to escape the war. Hundreds of cities and villages were burned to the ground. Millions of people died of starvation and torture in the «death camps».

Therefore, I would like to remind everyone: war is the most terrible thing in the world. For that 4 years we lost 27 million of our fellow citizens.

No matter how insoluble contradictions seem, it is always necessary to choose the «path of peace»
— the path of negotiations and reasonable compromises.

Today, there are just thousands of veterans left of the tens of thousands people participated in the terrible war. But we will never forget that 1418 days and nights of the Great Patriotic War. Our duty to the fallen, living and future generations is to do everything so that it does not happen again.

Let us forever cherish the memory of those who died for their country!

I wish all of us peaceful skies!
