Shavkat Mirziyoyev pays tribute to the memory of ancestors

On May 9, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the Memory Square in the heart of capital Tashkent. The head of state laid a wreath at the foot of the Grieving Mother Monument and paid tribute to the memory of compatriots who sacrificed their lives in the name of peace and future generations.

The image of the Grieving Mother embodies all the pain and spoil of the war, and its tragic consequences. For it is mothers who bring up the defenders of the native land, and it is they who have the share of the most bitter trials of the war.

Today, our country enjoys peace and harmony. Children are healthy, and the souls of mothers are at peace of mind. By celebrating the 9th of May – the Day of Memory and Honor – we express our appreciation of these peaceful days, our aspiration to be friends and cooperate with all other nations, our desire to build a better future.

On this occasion, officials of various ministries and other government agencies as well as social organizations also laid flowers at the foot of the monument. The youth who came here honored the memory of fathers and grandfathers, those who fell in the name of these bright days; lessons learned about the value and significance of peace.

The festive event occasioned to the Day of Memory and Honor is due in the Tashkent Botanical Garden.
