On the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, Kiev will honor the memory of those who, having committed an act of self-sacrifice, made it possible for future generations to live, and it will be declared, that fascism had no right to rebirth. The MP from the OPPOSITION PLATFORM – FOR LIFE Ilya Kiva said this at video message, posted on the official Facebook page of the All-Ukrainian movement against fascism «Patriots – For Life».
«I, as the leader of the anti-fascist movement in Ukraine, the grandson of the Hero of the Soviet Union, invite you to come to the Motherland Complex at 4 am on June 22nd in order to honor the memory of those who gave their lives in this terrible war, who gave their lives with us, forging victory and enabling us to live today. We must remember these dates, we must honor the memory of the victims, we must swear that this will never happen again», – he said.
Ilya Kyva emphasized that 80 years ago, on June 2 at 4 o’clock in the morning, a treacherous invasion of the German fascist invaders took place.
«And this was the beginning of the most bloody, brutal war in the history of mankind – the Great Patriotic War. At 4.15 the first Luftwaffe bombs fell on peaceful Kiev, cutting off hundreds of lives of innocent women and children. And then there were 4 years of hell, hell of struggle and confrontation for peace, for the future, for the victory, which was given to us at such a dear price», – the people’s deputy noted.
The politician also called on the Ukrainian authorities to join in honoring the memory of those, who was killed during the Great Patriotic War: «I appeal to the country’s leadership: do not be afraid, come and bow to all those, who performed the feat of self-sacrifice, so that today we have the opportunity to raise children, see this sun, see this world», – he said.
At the same time, Ilya Kyva added: «I appeal to the missions and embassies of those countries, that took an active part in the fight against fascism: together with you, we must declare to the whole of Ukraine and the whole world that fascism has no right to revival and fascism in our country and our world will not repeat itself and will not pass!»- summed up the people’s deputy.
