The purpose of this action, stressed the Acting Consul General of Russia Pavel Morozov, which has been held for five years in different countries of the world on the eve of the celebration of the Great Victory, is to plant 27 million trees in memory of the same number of those who died during the Great Patriotic War.
Each tree, he said, “is a green monument to the memory of the dead and a symbol of gratitude to the peaceful generation.” He expressed his gratitude to the leaders of the Belarusian region for supporting this project.
Addressing the organizers of the action, Belarusian presidential aide Yury Karaev noted with satisfaction that taking part in such events, people “are always happy when they see well-groomed land. You need to plant trees, put the things in order, thereby increasing nature’s richness of our land.” And twice as great, he said, when timed to coincide with an event such as the anniversary of the Great Victory. “We are for peace, so that there are no wars. Therefore, we not only say these words, but also planted an alley in honor of this,” the inspector of the Grodno region proudly added.
By the way, 25 countries are participating in the Garden of Memory campaign this year, including the CIS states, Serbia, Cyprus, as well as countries on the African continent.
