    Esteemed friends

    Thank you for wonderful and immensely meritorious work. I visit the website fairly frequently. Each time with pride and sadness at the same time.
    The lives of our heroes are unrecoverable, just like their belief in life in freedom is irreplaceable.

    How many citizens will remember today the heroism and devotion to the home country of these young heroes….?

    Honour to their memory.
