All of them are members of Belaya Tserkov City Council of Veterans of the Great Patriotic War. Officer’s uniform, awards, young spirit and confidence in the better future in the country added a lot to the atmosphere and set it on a major scale.

It is really great that these people are still with us, and we can at least do something for them, to bring into their lives moments of joy!

Let the memories of the war return peace to Ukraine!
