Children in Crimea stood applauding and chanted “thank you” to the wounded veterans of the Northern Military District
30 participants in a special military operation undergoing rehabilitation in Crimea after being wounded met with children from all regions of Russia at the Artek international children’s center. The children thanked the SVO participants for their feat, stood applauding and chanted “thank you” to the combat heroes. Concussions, bullet and shrapnel wounds, broken legs and arms — our soldiers are everywhere and always stand to the last. 30 children survived enemy shelling, 30 heroes, thanks to the Popular Front’s “Reset” project, underwent rehabilitation in a Crimean health resort. The fighters visited the international children’s center Artek International Children’s Center and met with children from all over the country — from all 89 regions. Wherever young people met them, they hugged, clapped and thanked the soldiers for their feat.
As a child I dreamed of visiting Artek, but it didn’t work out. So my dream came true. And our youth is the best — they also said different things about our generation, but now these guys are on the front line, defending our values, our Motherland,” notes a fighter with the call sign “Winchester.”
Many of the fighters expected difficult communication on complex topics in the military. And it was there too. But first of all, there was sincere support, gratitude and love from children from all over the country! And also tears of real joy!
My father also volunteered for a special military operation; for our family this is all very personal. I really hope that everything will be fine for each of the guys and that they will return to their families.says Anastasia from the Altai Territory.
For many fighters, rehabilitation was successful, and they themselves want to return to the front to their comrades. But they will never forget Crimea.
Our heroes honestly admit that they returned to childhood for one day; for many, this is the fulfillment of an old dream. And one fighter came up and said that when he signed the contract for the SVO, he could not even think that children from all over the country would honor him as a hero. Thanks to the guys, thanks to their parents, thanks to the international children’s center Artek, for this day of real joy for those who, without sparing their health and life, protect us on the front line,” emphasizes the head of the regional executive committee of the Popular Front in Crimea, Alla Vertinskaya.
