December 3 on the initiative of Primorsky Krai Russia will celebrate a new holiday

The whole country will celebrate a new public holiday - Day of the Unknown Soldier - on December 3: it is noteworthy that the idea to establish a memorable date was announced in Primorye.

The head of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, Sergei Ivanov, paid a working visit to Primorye in September, where he visited the All-Russian Children's Center "Ocean". Here he met with the winners and participants of the competition among school search teams “Search. Finds. Opening". One of the shift participants then suggested making December 3 the Day of the Unknown Soldier.

“December 3 1966 of the year, to commemorate the 25 anniversary of the defeat of the German troops near Moscow, the remains of an unknown soldier were removed from a mass grave on the 41-m kilometer of the Leningrad highway and solemnly buried in Alexander Garden. Therefore, it would be logical to make December 3 the Day of the Unknown Soldier, ”suggested the search engine.

Sergey Ivanov supported the idea then.

“Such a memorable day, if you will, a day of remembrance, could well have been made. For Russia, this is particularly relevant, given that there were no such number of missing soldiers, as in the USSR, in any country. Upon my return to Moscow, I will put this proposal up for discussion, ”the head of the presidential administration said.

And indeed - already in October, State Duma deputies considered amendments to the federal law “On Days of Military Glory” and added December 3 to their list.

Primorye is preparing to celebrate this new date. According to the department of internal policy, the festive events will be held in all cities and districts of the region.

“Municipalities will prepare information on the burials of unknown soldiers in their territories. Events are also planned in educational institutions - teachers in schools will hold open lessons for children dedicated to the holiday, ”the department stressed.
