Holiday with tears on eyes

May 9, 1945, the courageous Red Army won a long-awaited victory after five hard years of war with Nazi Germany. And every year after the great victory each country of the post-Soviet space is celebrating this holiday.

Even a few weeks before this important date, Kyrgyz people congratulate veterans, wearing St. George ribbons, create action groups that collect funds to help the heroes of the war, which number is becoming less and less every year.

And on May, 9 the whole country celebrates the heroes of the Great Patriotic War on the Victory Square in Bishkek and other cities of Kyrgyzstan. I also visited the festival in order to congratulate the brave old men and sincerely thank them for the peaceful sky over our heads. Here is the photoreport from the Victory Square named after Dair Asanov in Bishkek, May 9, 2013.
