“St. George Ribbon” campaign to be held in the RS (Y) capital

George Ribbon for Russian people is one of the symbols of the Great Victory.

Every year all major Russian cities’ public associations distribute two-color ribbons. Over 70 million ribbons were distributed in the country for 8 years of the campaign performance. By the way, the colors of ribbons - black and yellow - mean “smoke and flame” and are a sign of personal virtue of a soldier on the battlefield.

Last year Yakutsk held this event with the active participation of the Yakutsk Youth Union members and under support of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports of the Republic. The campaign will take place on May 7-9.
