In Ashgabat - the ceremony of laying flowers to the memorial complex "People's Memory". Memorable events will be held in all cities and villages of the country.

During the years of that brutal war, the population of Turkmenistan worked tirelessly, the remaining Turkmen people in the rear helped the front, bringing Victory Day closer. Our women, having handed over to the Defense Fund 7392 kilograms of gold and silver jewelry, showed a sample of humanism. It was during the war years that the Turkmen kalby giant carpet was woven by Turkmen craftswomen.

We are sincerely proud of our courageous countrymen, we bow our heads before their military feats and learn from them selfless love for the Motherland! After all, it is they, not sparing their lives, fighting with the enemy on the fronts and working in the rear, together with representatives of other nations, saved humanity from enslavement and death. And today we, the descendants of the heroes, are doing everything we can to preserve peace on the planet and strengthen friendship and fraternity between nations, the message says.
