On the eve of the Great Victory Day, ceremonial events were held in various districts of Pavlohrad in memory of those killed during the Great Patriotic War, which were attended by the city’s oppositionists. Rallies were held near the mass graves and memorials located on Koroliov, Sadovnychenko and Karavanchenko streets, as well as at the Pavlohrad-2 railway station.
According to the MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Artur Martovytskyi, many city residents came with portraits of relatives who died at the front during the war of 1941-1945. “I also held in my hands the photos of my grandfathers - Pavlo Andriiovych Shipko, who died in 1941, and Dmytro Ivanovych Martovytskyi, who died in 1943,” the MP said.
He is convinced that as long as the memory of the heroes of the war is alive, they will be invisibly next to us.
“I am grateful to everyone who brought photos of their loved ones today. Anyone who remembers the people who defended not only their Homeland, but also all of Europe from Nazism. Let the memory of these heroes never fade away. I would like the future of Ukraine to be free, peaceful and not enslaved and the people of our country felt confident in the future. I want every Ukrainian’s childhood to be happy and old age – secured,” Artur Martovytskyi emphasized.
