Events organized by members of the Operational Group of the Russian Forces in Tiraspol have been an important component of the Pridnestrovian Victory Day celebration program for many years. This anniversary year was no exception. Traditional mass festivities on the territory of the military unit of peacekeepers - with the beloved citizens and visitors of the capital, exhibitions, reconstructions, concerts and field kitchen – this time, for all obvious objective reasons, will not be. Nevertheless, the Russian military actively joined in the organization of congratulatory concerts, which will take place today on mobile stages plying around the city, which used military vehicles equipped with sound-amplifying equipment. The Russians prepared gifts for each veteran. A festive atmosphere was created in the military town. They laid flowers at the memorial complex, which was restored for the 75th anniversary of the Victory, which includes the Eternal Flame, a monument to the Unknown Soldier and the Alley of Heroes. The President of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic Vadim Krasnoselsky and his wife took part in the ceremony. The archbishop of Tiraspol and Dubossary Sawa served the liturgy for the dead. There was a minute of silence in their memory.
Today they laid a wreath and flowers at the new monument - the portrait sculpture of Georgy Zhukov. Victory Marshal commanded the Odessa Military District and visited Tiraspol. The opening of the monument to Marshal, created on the initiative of the military personnel of the Russian Federation and installed on the territory of the military unit of the OGRV, was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet people in the war of 1941-1945. The ceremony was attended by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the PMR Vadim Krasnoselsky and the Commanding Officer of the Operational Group of the Russian Forces in Pridnestrovie Dmitry Zelenkov. The PMR President thanked the initiators and everyone involved in the creation of the monument, noting the significance of this event in an environment where attempts are being made everywhere to belittle or even nullify the merits of the Soviet people in the fight against fascism and the contribution of the Soviet soldier to the Great Victory.
Vadim Krasnoselsky thanked the initiators and all those involved in the creation of the monument to the commander.
Another important event of the holiday is the opening of the miniature chapel of Alexander Nevsky (acting guardian of the ground troops) on the territory of the Tiraspol military town of OGRV. It is assumed that its main visitors will be Russian solgiers. The Church of St. Andrew the First-Called, rebuilt more than two decades ago by the forces of Russian peacekeepers near the location of the temple of the same name destroyed in Soviet times, has long been a place of mass visits by parishioners. It was decided to make access to the church even more free - without going through the military unit.
Leaving the military camp of OGRV, Vadim Krasnoselsky congratulated the Russian military on the Great Victory Day, calling them worthy heirs of great victories and expressing gratitude on behalf of the whole people of Pridnestrovie for the peace that they maintain on Pridnestrovian land, continuing the glorious traditions of grandfathers who did not allow in the forties of the past centuries of dominance of fascism. “We have a common history, a common Victory, a common future, common goals and objectives, among which is the preservation of memory”, the PMR President emphasized.
