Defender of Fatherland Day in Ruslanguage

Defender of Fatherland day is a very important holiday in Russia, celebrated on February 23. This day Russian women congratulate men: fathers, brothers, teachers and even co-workers, and thank them for being the defenders of their lives and the whole Russia. This holiday is also the Russian equivalent of Father’s Day in other countries (which has not traditionally been celebrated in Russia). We decided to share this festive event with you! On Wednesday, February 24, we will gather in the hall of our school at 17.00 to watch the movie “Ballad of a soldier”, devoted to this occasion. ballad-of-a-soldier-movie-poster-1961-1020209080
