Today, on February 7, Head of the People’s Patrol Roman Troshin, together with representatives of the Donetsk Republic Public Movement, delivered food packages to veterans of the Great Patriotic War who had survived the Siege of Leningrad, a correspondent of the Official Website of the Donetsk People’s Republic reports.

“It is very unfortunate that so few people, who survived the terrible events of the Siege of Leningrad, are living today. My colleagues and I visited two GPW veterans today — Gusman Safin and Pavel Morozov, to express utmost respect to them and deliver food packages, along with household chemicals.

We need to remember our history and those who unsparingly won the Great Victory not sparing themselves. We must learn from their life experience and build our future with that knowledge,” Roman Troshin said.

For his part, Executive Secretary of the DPR Veterans Organization Vladimir Surkov noted that time is very hard on war veteran, and the hostilities that began in 2014 brought additional troubles, since no one thought that our veterans would once again have to go through the military time, the blockade and all those hardships that fell to their lot 75 years ago.

“They are struggling to hold on, regularly communicate with young people as part of courage lessons and patriotic education. In addition to that, they take an active part in various events and the Victory Parade,” he added.
