Thousands take part in Immortal Regiment marches around ex-Soviet republics

Thousands of people partook in the Immortal Regiment marches in the capitals of Belarus, Armenia, Moldova and Georgia to mark the 73rd anniversary of Victory Day on Wednesday. One of the participants in the Minsk march said that it is important to remember the veterans and the war. «Those who forget the war expect a new one, that's why we have to, we are obliged to honour and remember our... Еще veterans.» In the Armenian capital hundreds of people marched along the half-blocked streets carrying photos of their relatives and loved ones who died during the war. Participant Galina Kolpina emphasised that memory of her grandfather is 'sacred' to her and that she will try to make her children remember the fallen. In the Moldovan capital of Chisinau, the country's President Igor Dodon was seen participating in the march alongside thousands of countrymen. In Tbilisi, Soviet flags and pictures of Joseph Stalin were carried along the city of capital despite the government banning the public display of Soviet symbols. This was the second time the Immortal Regiment march was held in Georgia. The Immortal Regiment march is an annual event held throughout Russia and in other countries between May 7 to 9 and is part of worldwide commemorative events to mark the anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War.
