TASHKENT, May 9 – RIA Novosti. The Russian boxing team laid flowers on the territory of the “Common Graves” memorial complex in Tashkent on May 9, the press service of the Russian Embassy in Uzbekistan said on Tuesday.

Russian athletes participate in the World Boxing Championship held in Tashkent on May 1-14. The International Boxing Association (IBA) announced that on October 5, 2022, athletes from Russia and Belarus were accepted to international tournaments under the flags of their own countries, and if they win, the national anthems will be played.

“The Russian boxing team is also present at the Volgograd Memorial Cemetery in Tashkent, as a symbol of the fact that kindness comes with a fist when necessary,” the message on the telegram channel of the diplomatic mission said.

Previously, tens of thousands of people traditionally came to Mass Graves in the early morning to lay flowers at the Eternal Fire, as well as to congratulate veterans. Within the scope of the Immortal Regiment campaign, hundreds of people marched, including in the alley of the monument, with photographs of relatives and friends who participated in the war.

Heads of diplomatic missions of the CIS countries, including Russian Ambassador to Uzbekistan Oleg Malginov, also laid flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the memorial complex on Tuesday morning.

Since 1999, May 9 has been celebrated as the Day of Remembrance and Honor in Uzbekistan. “Mass graves” were located in the capital of Uzbekistan in 1975 on the site of a military hospital that existed in 1941-1945. On the territory of the complex, 1.5 thousand Soviet soldiers and officers who died in the hospital from their wounds during the war were buried. On the eve of the holiday, the territory of the complex was arranged.
