For several years, on the initiative of Oleg Valenchuk, a deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, a member of the Supreme Council of the United Russia party, the social program “Seeds of the Union of Russian Gardeners” has been successfully implemented in the Kirov region.
The other day in the Sanchur region, the distribution of sets of seeds of five basic crops began: beets, carrots, pumpkins, zucchini and cucumbers. They have been handed over to veterans, disabled people, teachers and workers of cultural and leisure institutions. Also, representatives of the Union of Gardeners brought flower seeds to the region. Flowers grown from them will be used to improve the territories of institutions and memorial complexes.
In Sanchursk they cherish the memory of the heroes who stood our right to a peaceful life. In 2016, the Council of Veterans of Sanchursk decided to perpetuate the memory of the heroes of their fellow countrymen by creating a memorial complex. In 2019, their idea was supported by Oleg Valenchuk, and already on May 9, 2020, on the day of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, residents of Sanchur were able to lay wreaths at the foot of the monument to soldiers-fellow countrymen on the renovated square named after. CM. Kirov.
Faina Kiseleva, an employee of the Shishov Library, also cherishes the memory of those terrible days. She created a whole stand – a wartime map.
“We had 28 villages then,” says Faina Aleksandrovna. The war has affected every family. 31 people left Borkino, 13 were killed. 83 people left Ageevo, 45 never returned home. As long as we are alive, we will preserve the memory of our fellow countrymen-heroes and we will bring the historical truth to our children and grandchildren.
The residents of Sanchur are especially proud that Air Marshal, Hero of the Soviet Union Konstantin Vershinin was born and lived on their land.
Already in the spring, work on the improvement of the memorial complexes of the region will continue. And in May, on Victory Day, young apple trees and lilac bushes will be planted as part of the “Memory Gardens” movement.
“The Great Patriotic War gave many examples of mass heroism, self-sacrifice and selfless love for the native land,” Oleg Valenchuk emphasized. “75 years have passed, but the memory of those terrible days does not fade. It is passed down from generation to generation: from parents to children, from heart to heart, bringing up true patriotism and love for the Motherland in the souls of the younger generations.
