"22 June, exactly at 4 o'clock ..."
Eighty years have passed since the Second World War began. The war took the lives of millions of our compatriots, led to severe deprivation, and left behind destroyed cities and burnt-out villages. The country went through all this, survived and triumphed.
On May 9, Russia celebrates the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. This day is significant for all residents of our country because in every family there were people who fought for liberation from fascism at the front or in the rear. The memory of their feat lives in our hearts.
To the Blessed Memory
On the Great Victory Day, a solemn laying of flowers at the monument to Soviet citizens who died in Belgium during World War II took place at the Brussels cemetery.
...On eight fronts of my fatherland
The maelstrom of war has swept away
Ten lives every minute,
That makes six hundred lives every hour ...

The exhibition space of the Victory Museum is more than 14 thousand square meters in the main building and more than 9 hectares in the outdoor areas, where there are more than 400 examples of military equipment. The museum has a total of about 300 thousand items.
The main building of the museum houses the permanent exhibition "The Deed of the Army", completed by multimedia installations; the Hall of Historical Truth, which is a complex of six dioramas ("Counteroffensive of the Soviet troops near Moscow in December 1941", "Siege of Leningrad", "Battle of Stalingrad. Union of the fronts", "Battle of Kursk", "Battle of the Dnieper", "Battle in Berlin") and a three-dimensional panorama "Battle in Berlin. The feat of the standard-bearers".
The memorial honouring all the soldiers of the Second World War is erected on the site of the bloody battles which took place near Rzhev in 1942-1943. It was created on the initiative of the WWII veterans, those who fought here, who held back and defeated the forces of Hitler's Armed Group "Centre".
On the right bank of the majestic Volga River, in the central district of the city of Volgograd, formerly called Stalingrad, stands Mamayev Kurgan. On it rises the striking "The Motherland Calls" sculpture, which symbolizes the victory of the Soviet people over fascism, their desire for independence and their willingness to sacrifice themselves.
The Battle of Stalingrad marked a radical turning point in World War II; in this utterly destroyed city, it was the first time that an entire German army surrendered. After the Battle of Stalingrad, most of the Wehrmacht commanders realized that the Soviet people would no longer be broken and that fascism would soon come to an end. In 2008 the Mamayev Kurgan Memorial Complex was recognized as one of the seven wonders of Russia.
