MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin has congratulated WWII veterans and home front toilers on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the legendary military parade held on Red Square on November 7, 1941.
In his speech of congratulations Sobyanin recalled the heroic parade held on the Red square 70 years ago when the troops of the Soviet army and people's voluntary units marched down Red Square, demonstrating to the whole country that Moscow would not surrender to the enemy, and that the Russian people had enough strength to fight and win.
Sobyanin called on citizens to bow heads to the exploit of their fathers and grandfathers who stopped the enemy on Moscow’s threshold. Their names have gone down in the history of Moscow forever, Sobyanin stressed. The mayor also congratulated war veterans and former soldiers who had been to WWII fronts, defending Moscow, but who at present are living in different regions of Russia, in the CIS and Baltic states.
Concluding his speech, the Moscow mayor expressed gratitude on behalf of the Moscow government and all Muscovites to all those who defended the capital during World War II.
"You are the embodiment of pride and glory of our city. You have set an example to the generations to come," Sobyanin said, addressing the war veterans.
