Crimean veterans and the public remember the heroism of the partisans who gave their lives in 41- 27 years. This is especially true in light of today’s events in Ukraine. The motivation of our army today is to save the people of friendly Ukraine from neo-Nazis who have been killing people in the Donbas for the last 8 years. The position of Crimean veterans is that we remember and honor our history in the Great Patriotic War and will never forget the exploits of partisans and underground fighters who bravely fought against the Nazis on the territory of Crimea , Georgy Besstrakhov noted.
