MOSCOW, June 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will lay a wreath in front of the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier near the Kremlin wall in the Alexander Garden on Sunday, June 22, to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the start of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945).
Russia has been marking June 22, the day when the Great Patriotic War broke out, as Day of Memory and Grief since 1996. By tradition, the head of state will also lay wreaths to the stones with the names of hero cities located along the Kremlin wall and to the monument to the Cities of military glory.
The Russian prime minister, members of the presidential administration, the speakers of both chambers of Russian parliament, cabinet ministers, veteran military leaders and public representatives will take part in the ceremony alongside with President Putin.
