Irina, Russia – Level 3


9 May is celebrated as Victory Day in Russia. On this day millions of people in Russia and in other Republics of the former Soviet Union celebrate victory over fascist Germany in the Great Patriotic War.

26.6 million Soviet people perished in the four years of this war. 8 668 400 soldiers died and 7.4 million people were killed in concentration camps in Europe and on occupied territory belonging to the Soviet Union. Many other people died from hunger and cold.

I say thanks for this victory. Thanks to this victory my parents and I were born and we live in a free country.
