For the first time it was organized in Tomsk in 2012 and then it immediately converted into a national action. Today it’s organized not only in Russia but also in other countries that fought against fascism. Not so long ago «Volunteers of the Victory» movement was initiated. Thanks to this movement we take part in the march, help to organize it and honour the memory of our ancestors».
