MOSCOW, November 4. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is due to participate in the events on Wednesday dedicated to the National Unity Day, the Kremlin press service has said.
The Russian leader will lay flowers at the monument to Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky, the leaders of the militia in 1611-1612 that liberated Moscow from the Polish invaders.
Like in the previous years, the ceremony near the St. Basil’s Cathedral on Moscow’s Red Square will be attended by the representatives of religions and youth organizations.
Putin will later visit the 14th Church and Public Forum and Exhibition Orthodox Russia. My History. From Great Upheavals to the Great Victory. The exhibition is dedicated to Russia’s history between 1914 and 1945.
The president will also honor foreign citizens with state awards for their particular contribution to strengthening peace, friendship, cooperation and mutual understanding between nations.
The National Unity Day holiday was established 10 years ago replacing the Day of Consent and Reconciliation, which had been celebrated on November 7 (formerly Revolution Day) since 1996.
