The Day of Victory in the Great patriotic war is one of the favourite holidays in our country and is traditionally celebrated in Zaporizhzhya national university.

On May, 7 the meeting-requiem, dedicated to victory in the Great patriotic war was held. Students and lecturers gathered near the Memorial of Fame, set in honour of victims of the War, who worked in the university, in order to honour their memory, and also to congratulate veterans.

With congratulation speech the rector of ZNU Sergij Timchenko addressed to veterans. Then the veteran Voldimir Jumatov shared his war reminiscences with all the present and the forth-year student Tetyana Nikolaevska read her own poem in honour of winners of the Great patriotic war. The meeting ended with a minute of silence and putting flowers to the Memorial.

There representatives of Zaporizhzya state administration and Zaporizhzhya municipal council spoke and congratulated soldiers-heroes.
