Hello to all who reads my site. Today's news will not be connected with progress in the development of the modification. But today's date is very important and I think you may know why. 9 May we, inhabitants of former Soviet Union's republics (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and others) celebrate the Victory Day.
In this day was signed an act of unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany (by European time it was still 8 May, and because of this there spends this date in 8 May, but by Moscow time it was already 9 May).
Under the direction of Joseph Stalin, Red Army, consisting from the ordinary citizens of different nationalities of Soviet Union (Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians, representatives of other peoples and nationalities inhabiting the large Soviet Union), initially liberated our country, and then became to liberate Europe (were liberated Romania, Czechoslovakia, Poland), and after bloody battles, finally, Berlin was taken.
Our Allies, seeing how perfidiously the Nazis attacked our country in the summer of 1941, entered into hostilities and opened the second front only in 1944.
This victory went to us at a huge price — 26 million human lives. No country has not suffered in this conflict like USSR.
Ordinary people against the powerful united army of the Third Reich. But these people are not so ordinary. They were unusually brave, risky and honest, fervently loved their homeland. These were our grandfathers and great-grandfathers.
And because of this, this day, 9 May, celebrated so widely; for us this is like a new born; we rose from the ashes to then restore our country.
City in which I live was also destroyed. Historical buildings in the center, that I like very much, were in ruins. And I know what large work were spent, after the war, to restore them.
Happy Victory Day!
In one of previous news about this day I made a brief overview of some my modifications on this theme. I recommend to read them again and maybe even download one of my mods. The Monument modification, for example, adds a large monument dedicated to the unknown soldier (also with this mod you can eat army porridge and use the one thematic attraction — a gun), and with The Seizure of Airport you can pass a little mission and free, as a Red Army soldier, an airport in the countryside that was captured by The Hitlerites.
Thanks for attention and understanding, why this is so important for me and I write about this on the site of my GTA mod.
Well, and about the mod — very soon I'll return again to the active news about development progress and I have a lot of interesting materials to show!
