The United Russia party is holding the preparatory stage of the Victory Dictation International Action. The patriotic action with international status will start for the third time this year. At the epicenter of the organizers’ attention is the first year of the Great Patriotic War and the anniversary dates of the Soviet commanders.
You can write “Dictation of Victory” in full-time and online mode on the website dictationpobedy.rf.
“The Victory Dictation will take place on April 29,” said Sergei Naryshkin, Chairman of the Public Council of the United Russia Party Project “Historical Memory”, Chairman of the Russian Historical Society (RIO), during a thematic briefing. – For the first time, platforms for writing a dictation will be organized both in large cities and in small settlements. With the support of Rossotrudnichestvo, the patriotic action will become available for our compatriots abroad and persons with foreign citizenship. The online format ensures participation in the “Victory Dictation” for everyone.
As clarified on the party website “ER”, about the established tradition, the tasks for the “Dictation of Victory” with the support of United Russia were prepared by experts from the RIO, the Russian Military Historical Society and the Russian Humanitarian State University. According to the deputy secretary of the General Council of United Russia, Alexander Khinshtein, participants in the International Patriotic Action will be asked to complete 25 tasks, as well as answer 20 questions of general military history and five questions with a regional bias.
“A large block of questions will touch upon the tragic events of the beginning of the war and its first year,” he said. – Our first defeats and victories, as well as the anniversaries of great commanders, will not be ignored. Let me remind you that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the birth of two outstanding military leaders at once – Georgy Zhukov and Konstantin Rokossovsky.
The plans for organizing the action are the opening of 12 thousand sites “Pobeda’s Dictation”. Traditionally, they will be located on the basis of the institutions of the Ministry of Defense, Rosgvardia, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, at the enterprises of the “Cities of Labor Valor”, as well as at the facilities of Rosatom, Roskosmos, Rosmorrechflot, Russian Railways, Roshydromet, on ships and nuclear power plants. Overseas sites will be opened with the assistance of Rossotrudnichestvo.
Olga Amelchenkova, co-chair of the United Russia General Council working group on support of youth initiatives, head of the Central Headquarters of the Victory Volunteers All-Russian Public Movement, noted that an adult resident of Russia can help the initiators of the Victory Dictation in organizational matters. To do this, you need to register as a volunteer on the Victory Volunteers portal.
“It will be necessary to undergo special training organized for volunteers, which includes two formats,” she said. – Training provides for online mode and takes place on a special platform of the “Victory Volunteers” and directly at the sites of the “Victory Dictation”.
It should be noted that this year “Victory Dictation” will be held for the third time. The patriotic action is being prepared by the United Russia party, the Russian Historical Society, the Russian Military Historical Society and the Victory Volunteers movement. In 2020, more than a million people from various regions of Russia and residents of 75 foreign countries took part in the “Victory Dictation”. Also this year, the International Action with a deep patriotic meaning, according to the Deputy Chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea, the head of the United Russia faction and the regional coordinator of the Historical Memory party project Vladimir Bobkov, will become part of a whole complex of events dedicated to the celebration of May 9.
– Of course, one of the main events dedicated to the great holiday will be the traditional action “Victory Dictation”, – he said. – Its goal is not only to test knowledge about the Great Patriotic War, but also to demonstrate to each of us that this knowledge is not exhaustive, and, in fact, it is necessary to study the history of the Great Victory throughout our lives. Last year, we tried to make the writing of the dictation memorable, using iconic platforms for this – the Memorial Complex on the site of the former concentration camp “Red”, the coast against the background of the Crimean bridge near the Hero-City of Kerch. Of course, this year we will also think over interesting locations and hold a large-scale announcement of the action so that as many residents of the Republic of Crimea as possible take part in it.
