DAY OF RUSSIA OFFLINE!
BY DANIEL SHABANOV | JUNE 13th, 2020
The whole country celebrated Day of Russia! In Dagestan, it was celebrated in a special way!
All state institutions hung Russian flags on the windows. Personal concerts from the window were organized for war veterans, the head of the republic, Vladimir Vasiliev, congratulated residents from one of the courtyards of Makhachkala, the largest flag of the Russian Federation in the North Caucasus Federal District was deployed on Sary-Kum dune! I took part in the unfolding of the flag.
From the 15th of June the first stage of restrictions is already being lifted in Dagestan. All spring, Dagestanis, like all Russians, were sitting at home: all parks and reserves were closed for quarantine. And now, the dune of Sary-Kum meets the guests again. All participants at the beginning climbed the highest point of the dune along the stairs, which either went up or down. Sometimes stairs disappeared in the sand — and it lasted for 20 minutes in hot weather!
Here we are. The participants began to unfold 1000 square meters of flag. Under the Russian Anthem, the flag was solemnly spread. Thanks to modern quadrocopter technology, one could see the flag from above.
The action was attended by activists of the ONF movement, «Volunteers of the Republic», as well as artists of the ensemble «Lezginka».
After that the “Volunteers of Victory”, and the artists of Dagestan congratulated veterans of the war! Happy holiday, friends!
