The format of the event itself will not change: residents of the city will walk along the streets from the Park of Culture and Leisure to the Eternal Flame at the monument in the Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen with photographs of relatives who participated in the Great Patriotic War.
At the same time, the participants of the action were asked to “not politicize” May 9 holiday and not to arrange provocations. “There are 364 days a year in which you can engage in politics, you can PR. But this holy day should not be used for that,— said Murat Abdushkurov, head of the Coordinating Council of Public Associations of Veterans and Disabled Veterans of the War in Afghanistan and Local Military Conflicts.
The action “Immortal Regiment” has been held since 2012. Participants of the procession on Victory Day come out with photographs of their relatives— WWII participants. In addition to Russia, the event is held in dozens of other countries.
In 2019 and 2020, the action in Russia was held online due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year it will be held as usual in the form of processions in the cities. However, those whose relatives died during a special operation in Ukraine will also be able to participate in the action, said press secretary of the movement Olga Baibulova. Such participants will march in a common formation, there will be no separate procession for them.
