On the eve of the celebration of the Great Victory Day, students of the International Medical Institute of KSMU visited the memorial complex located on Victory Square. A visit to the Eternal Flame and monuments to fallen defenders of the Fatherland is an important milestone in the development of the cultural space of Russia, Kursk. At the memorial, the teacher Strelkova O.S. held a small cultural conversation about the significance of this memorial complex. The students also witnessed the preparation of Kursk schoolchildren for the upcoming Victory Day celebration: children read poems and speeches near the Eternal Flame. Students saw how reverently Russians keep historical memory, how deeply they honor the feat of the participants of the Great Patriotic War.
