Speaking to those present, Eskender Memetov noted that the people’s memory will forever preserve the events of the Great Patriotic War. I greet you on behalf of the esteemed Mufti Emirali Ablaev! I express my condolences to the Krymchak and Jewish peoples. For many centuries, humanity has passed, is passing and will pass tests from the Almighty. Some people succumb to Satan’s instigation. The Nazi invaders brought tyranny to our land, and our soldiers, at the cost of their lives, gave us the opportunity to live. We pray to the Almighty that he cleanse the minds and consciousnesses of all people from bad thoughts and fill their hearts with the light of spirituality , — the press service of the SAMK quotes the Chief Imam of the Evpatoria urban district Eskender Memetov.
