Veterans - young: "Today we transfer you to Russia ..."

May 16 2005

Grumbling about the "historical oblivion" young generation of oblivion "Pepsi" glorious lack of roots and a bright sense of patriotism in young hearts could hear everyone. How these conversations are groundless, it was possible to see on Sunday, visiting the patriotic action "Our Victory", organized by the Youth Democratic Antifascist Movement Nashi .

The action took place on Leninsky Prospekt in Moscow, she has collected from 50 to 60 thousand boys and girls from 30 regions of Russia. Youth honored veterans of World War II, which, incidentally, was more than a thousand, they arrived at a rally in comfortable buses.

Actually, the traditional meeting with posters, speakers and resolutions were not. There was a large stage on which stood the organizers of the rally and invited special guests - veterans. Were powerful speakers, from which flowed wartime songs. "Darkie-moldovanku, for example, played twice, and many of the girls sang well qualified - they know the words!

The action began with a moment of silence in memory of the war dead. And then the chairman of the Moscow Regional Committee of the Veterans Victor Azarov appealed to young people with a short speech:

- Today, we gave you to Russia. Now you have to fight for Russia, for the country, for the millions who perished heroes. They died so you could live, and you too shall live, not only for themselves but for the country, for Russia, for future generations. Never anybody you do not have to give up their homeland. Because Homeland man is one and the other will not.

Among the veterans was a lot of people in uniform. The youth was dressed in a T-shirt with red stars, boys and girls carrying the state flags of Russia and the flag of the movement - such as Andrew, just a white cross on a red background. The participants were fighting for the three-color cartridge ribbon, and with the inscription "Remember the war, take care of their homeland." As told the movement's leader Vasily Yakimenko, shells - war, they gave the organization the search engines, gathering in the field of battle.

On behalf of "our" motion was made by the Federal Commissioner Alexander Gorodetsky. He said:

- I am a free citizen of Russia, is taking our country from the hands of the older generation. Yesterday you were fighting for freedom, independence and a happy life on the front: Kursk and Stalingrad, in the virgin soil and the factory floor. Today I will continue this fight, where I will need my homeland. I accept today, Russia and swear that it never enter the new colonialists and invaders that there is no place for neo-fascists and their supporters that we have not completed a thousand-year history of Russia. I swear to regain its glory of the Motherland. I swear to make it a great story again. I swear to cherish the memory of generations. I swear to preserve the freedom and independence of their country.

After the execution of the national anthem of Russia voiced command "Eyes on the veterans!," And on the right side of Leninsky Prospekt metro station in the direction of "October" has moved a column, in which veterans marched together with boys and girls, keep them handy. Soldiers accompanied by applause, chanting: "Glory to the veterans!".

After the termination of the campaign organizers held an impromptu press briefing. Some of the journalists said that, without provocation still not done, and that the approaches to the venue of the rally the police detained a group of young people 15 - allegedly members of the AKM, which came here quarreling.Impulsive leader of Yakemenko to answer that brawlers no shame and no conscience. However, it later became clear that the detained were a group of guys, "partisanship" which is unclear - presented to journalists, but were not accredited.

At the briefing made by WWII veteran, Major-General Yevgeny Komissarov. He said that categorically does not like to talk about the deeply flawed younger generation. He said that he saw today some fifty thousand young, pretty faces and wants to wish the young to learn, work, in any revolution will not participate, girls - have at least four children, boys - to be ready to defend their homeland. The last wish, in my opinion, is particularly relevant in an era when young men from the Army without exception "mow," but that is another big issue ...

Do not know what to write to our liberal media that "our people" do not favor, for political motives and goals of the action "Our Victory". For example, I have not seen yesterday on Leninsky Prospekt no politics.

I saw another - that war veterans and youth respects and honors. And they express deep respect assembled from 100 and 200 young people, but, again, from 50 to 60 thousand - from across the country (one only has delegated Voronezh 3,000 people). Agree that action on an unprecedented scale. And I saw the happy faces of thousands of soldiers. And I think that is what counts.
