The action “Our Victory Day” came to the end on May 9 in the Volga Federal District (VFD). The press office of the head and government of Udmurtia reported that for the first time, the song “Den’ pobedy” was performed in the national languages of all the Volga peoples and united them into one big choir,.
This action brings together regions and supports the cultural identity of all peoples. Such actions emphasize the contribution of all peoples to the Great Victory
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the apparatus of the plenipotentiary of the President of Russia in the Volga Federal District initiated a large-scale action “Our Victory Day”. From April 25 to May 8, the regions of the district passed the song “Den’ pobedy” to each other.
The song “Den’ pobedy” is 45 years in 2020. It became one of the symbols of the Victory Day. Especially for the action, it was translated into all the national languages of the peoples of the Volga Federal District.
“Den’ pobedy” during the action was performed in Russian, Udmurt, Tatar, Bashkir, Mari, Chuvash, Moksha and Erzya. In the sound of the song there was not only a difference in languages, but also a variety of genres and styles of performance.
Soloists of state philharmonic societies, theaters, choirs, departmental and folk ensembles, the Victory Day symphony orchestras were performed by students, volunteers, participants of the show “Golos.Deti”, cover groups and champions of the Major League of KVN together with honored artists.
For me, participating in this project is a great honor and responsibility. I didn’t think for a minute when I learned about the filming. With age, you begin to understand that not everything in this life is measured in money, especially what is called patriotism. This is a feeling of real, national unity. I'm glad I could make my modest contribution
The USSR People's Artist Leonid Smetannikov also participated in the project. It was he, back in 1975, who the first performed the song “Den’ pobedy” on Soviet television. In 2020, the inhabitants of the Volga Federal District again heard the song performed by the famous singer.
A record of all the performances was held before the introduction of the self-isolation regime in Russia due to the situation with coronavirus, in February-March 2020. Videos with the performance of the song “Den’ pobedy” in Russian and national languages of the peoples of the Volga Federal District were broadcast on television and radio. It was also posted on popular social networks under the hashtags of #песнипобедыПФО and #нашденьпобеды.
The action “Our Victory Day”, held under the auspices of the plenipotentiary of the President of Russia in the Volga Federal District Igor Komarov, may become annual.
