In the year of the 15th anniversary the ribbons we will distribute 15 million of strips, – said the head of the movement “Victory Volunteers” Olga Emelchenkova. – Distribution of ribbons volunteers will begin may 4, but I’m glad that we are already ahead.

People ribbon left from last year that shows – orange-and-black stripes of memory, we become family.

– George ribbon is a gift for many people who are in isolation, but for veterans of the great Patriotic war and elderly people – just gift and value, – the Deputy Director “Repatriate” Natalia Mandrova. – In General, a pair of phenomena such as self-isolation and volunteering, return to the nature of the St. George ribbon. It now it became a sign of Victory, and was originally conceived as a sign of calm reflection about their roots, the memory of the ancestors who gave their lives for us. And the fact that volunteers are prepared for the transfer tape to older people, they will carry along with food packages or medicines, it’s the return of the ribbons of them quiet memory.
