Uzbekistan celebrates 9 May as Remembrance Day, at the initiative of the First President.
Over the years of independence, Remembrance Day has become a symbol of respect for those who lost their lives in World War II, of pride, and of gratitude for the peace and welfare of our people. There is no Uzbek family that had been left unaffected by the horrors of the war.
Our country remembers those who were put through many trials and who fought fascism.
It remembers the heroes who fought in the name of freedom that our people had long longed for.
Respecting its veterans, the state takes care of them and provides all the help and support.
Under the Presidential Decree ‘On Supporting Second World War Veterans’, each veteran was given a one-off reward of 2m soums.
The defence, interior, and finance ministries, as well as the National Security Service and the Central Bank were tasked with giving the rewards to WWII veterans in a solemn ceremony.
The veterans were given a priority for the purchase of an Uzbekistan-produced passenger car.
The state also provides support with housing, repair works and all other conditions for the veterans.
This year, the President sent all veterans his congratulations.
Ahead of Remembrance Day, authorities and public organisations held educational events about the defenders of our Motherland, including WWII veterans.
They were congratulated and provided with all necessary support.
All veterans felt the support and care of the state, which aims to create all necessary conditions for their lives.
It is owing to them that our homes are full of welfare.
It is our duty to honour and remember those who died on the battlefield, and to take care of those who are with us today.
UzReport sincerely wishes everyone a happy Remembrance Day, and wishes you peace, good health and long lives.
