Ahead of the main holiday for all Russians, a lesson of courage took place in the museum of Orphanage # 1 named after Marshall Georgy Zhukov in Gorno-Altask housing unique materials telling about the feat of the Russian people.
The lesson for the would-be defenders of Fatherland was held by militia veteran and veteran of the Great Patriotic War Ivan Pashkov and chairman Alexey Peshkov of the Veterans' Council under the MVD for the Altai Republic. The event took place within the framework of the patriotic action "Feat Relay".
The cadets received first-hand information about the bloody battle, many facts and events of the heroic past, about fighters and commanders who sacrificed their lives at that horrible war and about those who were hard working in the rear.
According to the brave infantry soldier, that period was an ordeal and endurance test, and required the mobilization of the spirits and courage. Ivan Pashkov called on the schoolchildren to be worthy of the memory of those killed at the battlefield and of their heroic deeds. It is impossible to love the Fatherland without knowing its history and being proud of its best sons.
At the end of the meeting, the schoolchildren took pictures with the guests and invited them to take part in the solemn events on the account of the Victory Day. In their turn, the guests handed Georgy ribbons over to them.
Today, the orphanage is upbringing a good generation of patriots and Fatherland's defenders. An officer's honour and readiness to come to one's comrade's aid are not just words but a guide for action.
