Activities were conducted in Russia to give preferential treatment to war veterans, model after their spirit and honour their achievements for war victory on the occasion of the Day of Defenders of the Motherland (February 23).


In Moscow, President Putin, the chairpersons of the State Duma and the Federation Council of Russia, representatives of political parties and members of the council of the Defence Ministry laid wreaths at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier beside the Kremlin walls and paid respects to the fallen soldiers in the war.


In Primorsky Territory a 200-square-metre large flag representing that of victory was unfurled and a nationwide patriotic campaign initiated in the meaning of remembering the achievements made by the people of the former Soviet Union during the Great Patriotic War forever, treating war veterans preferentially and holding them in public esteem.


The Primorsky governor laid a bouquet at the monument "Glory to the people of Arsenyev" in memory of the fallen soldiers in the war.


President Putin said in the Rossiya 24TV that the Day of Defenders of the Motherland was a symbol of loyalty to the country and valour, paying respect to all defenders of the motherland and service personnel who are now defending the country.


Extending gratitude to veterans of the great times who implanted confidence about victory and indomitable faith in the minds of younger generations, he said that the tradition of patriotism tightens the inseparable ties between the people, the country and their reliable defenders. It is also very important and urgently required today, he noted.


Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Matvienko, chairwoman of the Federation Council, also published their congratulatory messages to pay tribute to war veterans, remembering the feats of former generations who defeated Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War.


They also extended their congratulations to the brave and resolute defenders of the country who are devoting themselves to difficult military service, defending the interests of the state and contributing to the development of the country in peacetime.


Russia is making constant efforts to honour the achievements for war victory by promoting education in patriotism.
