At present Russians have the makings of heroes, which they transmitted from their ancestors — the participants of the great Patriotic war. About this on air of the program “Moscow. The Kremlin. Putin” on TV channel “Russia 1” stated President Vladimir Putin, reports RIA Novosti.
With these words the head of state commented on the March “Immortal regiment”. “But go with a picture of what that means? This means for myself to realize that in our veins flows their blood, in our DNA the same as our grandfathers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, mothers…” — said Putin.
The President also believes that the participation of Russians in similar demonstrations implies a willingness to respond adequately to the new challenges that will face the Motherland.
Putin reminded that heroes should be considered all participants of the great Patriotic war and home front workers.
