In the Year of Defenders of the Fatherland the youth government organized other actions, including help rendered to veterans at their homes. Also together with the organizers of the project «The Kara Sea Expeditions» they elaborate the regulation about open lessons of history «The Convoy «White Sea – Dikson 5, the unknown war». The young leaders plan to organize and conduct open lessons of history in educational institutions of Yamal and discussions with young people.
As we should remind, the governor of Yamal, the chairperson of the Youth government of the region Dmitriy Kobylkin in his yearly message focused special attention to attitude to the Great Patriotic War. As he says, today there are some people, who would like to bring events of those years into the oblivion, would like to lower or completely to negate a role of soviet soldiers and our country in destruction of the Nazism and in contribution to peace. «But we must defend this unfading memory, must protect Russia and its glorious history. This is our duty before veterans. This is our duty before the future!» he says.
