President Putin marks the beginning of the Great Patriotic War

In a summer downpour, Putin laid a wreath in eternal memory of the heroes of the most harrowing and deadly war in human history

On this day, the 22nd of June in 1941, the darkest period in Russian and Soviet history commenced. It was the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

In 1941 Hitler’s fascist armies were considered the strongest and most advanced in the world, but on the 9th of May 1945, they surrendered after being crushed by the power and resolve of the Soviet Union.

Today, President Putin along with prominent Russian politicians and military leaders laid a wreath at the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the wall of the Moscow Kremlin.

In spite of the heavy downpour, President Putin did not use an umbrella. He stood open to the elements just as the heroes of the Great Patriotic War stood down the face of unimaginable aggression. It was a small yet moving gesture which demonstrates the Russian President’s love of his country and his profound understanding of its history.
