The 9th of May

Today we celebrate the end of the Great Patriotic War with fascist Germany. 27 million of Soviet people gave their lives for us to live today. There wasn’t a single family without losses: soldiers at the battlefields, peaceful citizens during bombing or occupation by the invaders.

If we had lost, we wouldn’t even have been born because there would be total destruction of the whole nation. So today we commemorate our heroic ancestors and thank them for being alive. In the picture you can see a commemoration hall, I shot it last year in the museum of the Great Patriotic War in Kiev. The music is the Motherland Defense Hymn. If you are interested in the words, there is an English translation in the details of the video on youtube.
