The Embassy of the Russian Federation opens a Photo exhibition under the theme “The Long Way to Victory 1941-1945” ahead of the 70th Anniversary of the Victory Day

Addis Ababa, 14th April 2015: “People must always remember the terrible consequences of the attempts to establish World domination, the belief in one’s own exceptionality and the neglect of basic rules of law and morality. We should never forget the horrors and the cruelty of the past to prevent them in the future” emphasized H.E Mr. Vsevolod Tkachenko, Ambassador of the Russian Federation, in his remarks during the opening of the photo exhibition “The Long Way to Victory”at the African Union Headquarters today.

Ambassador Tkachenko underscored that the aim of this photo exhibition is not only to introduce wartime posters and photographs, but also to visually demonstrate the most topical of slogans with which the Soviet soldiers went into battle, died and defeated the enemy and finally achieved a complete victory in the biggest and most tragic war in the world history. “The display reminds us all of the losses that peoples of the world, and above all people of the Soviet Union, suffered. These images depict frozen moments of the brutal 900-day Siege of Leningrad, fierce battles of Moscow and Stalingrad, famous tank battle of Kursk, heavy fighting for the liberation of Europe and at last the great joy of Victory” he said.

Highlighting the relevance of the victory over Nazism, the Ambassador noted that the world still suffers from conflicts and brutal acts of terrorism, including Africa and highly commended the tremendous and crucial role that the African Union plays in settling crisis and maintaining peace and security in the continent.

Representing the Chairperson of the Commission, H.E Rhoda Tumussiime, and Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture reiterated that although the war affected mostly Europe, it also had devastating effects on colonialism in Africa, specifically on African resistance movements which eventually paved way for independence.

Commissioner Tumussime also called upon all nations to work together in faith to help achieve peace and security to create a peaceful world saying that Security and Peace is not primarily a matter of military preparedness, and cannot be enforced where economic and social conditions fail to sustain, it must indeed be created.  “Making peace is a job that all of us have the capability to do. All we need is to have the attitude “She concluded.

Russia will be celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Victory Day on 9th of May 2015.
