Commemorative events dedicated to the 79th celebration of the Victory over Nazi Germany were held in the German city of Bremen, a Rossa Primavera News Agency‘s correspondent informed on May 9.

Employees of the Russian Embassy in Berlin solemnly laid a wreath at the burial place of Soviet prisoners of war in Bremen’s Osterholz cemetery. The event was also attended by parishioners of the Russian Orthodox Church of Bremen.

In the burial section for foreigners who died in Bremen during World War II, the memory of the victims was honored by members of the German club “German-Russian Days of Peace in Bremen”. The organizers of this event laid flowers at the monument to grieving mothers and asked members of the Russian diplomatic mission to give a speech.

Svetlana Yenikeeva, Head of the Consular Section of the Russian Embassy in Germany, gave a short speech. With her words she reminded the audience of the many victims of World War II not only in the Soviet Union but also in Germany.

“Our task is to oppose any distortion of the truth about World War II,” Yenikeeva said. At the end of the event, poems by Anna Akhmatova were recited, and Soviet war songs were sung.
