Then we have a search historical-heroic game. The guys will look for monuments — why they were erected, in honor of what and whom, etc. As a result of all this, of course, there will be a candle for the city of Sevastopol, i.e. in the evening we will discuss all these questions and move to Rostov-on-Don. We have our own program there, then Volgograd. In Volgograd, we visit memorial places, get acquainted with the guard movement and join the Memory Watch with young Volgograd residents— said the head of the public organization «Lens Movement of Crimea» Yevgeny Kostylev.
