On June 12th our country celebrates the Russia Day. Shortly before the festivities a patriotic flashmob was held at South Ural State University.
The SUSU Rector Aleksandr Shestakov shared on why it had been decided to celebrate this holiday in this manner this year.
"This is a special day for our country. Our ancestors were contributing their hard work and courage, talents and inspiration into the creation of this great power; they were protecting our country from the enemies, were making scientific discoveries, creating and collecting the treasures of culture and art; they liberated our Motherland from the fascism, and became the first ones to send a human being into space. We try to help the new generations be worthy of the glory of their fathers and grandfathers, we not only do science, but we also implement patriotic education of young people," noted Aleksandr Shestakov.
While the Student Union volunteers were handing out the tricolour ribbons (about one thousand people received these) near one of the university buildings, the residents of a SUSU dormitory hung out flags in their windows, and several volunteers mounted to the building's rooftop and staged a smoke show waving the smoke jets of the Russian flag colours.
"On the occasion of this celebration we were handing out ribbons to all the people in the street and congratulating them on the upcoming Russia Day. We were drawing attention of some people to the campaign, to others we were explaining why the flags were hanging out from the windows, and we were wishing a good day to everyone," shared SUSU student and the Student Union volunteer Kseniia Voskresenskaia.
