Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Deportation of the Peoples of Crimea: Governor of Sevastopol — «Today the main guarantee of Victory is unity»

CrimeaPRESS reports:

Address of Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Deportation of the Peoples of Crimea:

Today we remember the victims of the deportation of the peoples of Crimea. From 1941 to 1944, thousands of Crimean Tatars, Russian Germans, Italians, Bulgarians, Greeks, Armenians, Krymchaks forcibly lost their homes and were forced to start life from scratch in a foreign land.

The deported peoples were eventually rehabilitated. Some of them were lucky enough to return to the peninsula, some remained forever in Central Asia.

In memory of this tragic page in history, a monument to the victims of deportation was erected near the railway station in Sevastopol. The following data is given on the monument: “From Sevastopol and suburban villages were deported: August 18-20, 1941 Crimean Germans — 497 people; May 18-19, 1944 Crimean Tatars — 12,312 people; June 27-28, 1944 Greeks — 1,053 people, Bulgarians — 439 people, Armenians — 229 people. This is our common pain and our memory.

Today, shoulder to shoulder at the forefront of the NMD, representatives of different nations are working to help the front. Today, our main guarantee of victory is unity, in the name of peace on Russian soil.
