Bishop Ioann of Naro-Fominsk greeted the audience and thanked the veterans and all those who labored for the sake of the great victory, wishing them good health. He noted that they continued their service by telling the new generation about their deeds thus giving a good example of selfless love of the Church, the Motherland and their neighbours. Winners of the international competitions, pianists Anna and Dmitry Shelest, and Gleb Ivanov, a winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions performed pieces of the national and world classical music.
