On May 13, 2024, the “Garden of Memory” action was held on the territory of the Russian Embassy in Belgium. The school students planted young lilac bushes as a symbol of Victory!

It was with branches of lilacs in their hands that in May 1945 they welcomed Soviet soldiers-liberators returning home!

We honor this tradition, and from year to year new bushes take root on the territory of Belgium, which every spring are happy with their color.

Before planting the lilacs, the staff of the Russian House in Brussels presented the results of the international historical action “Victory Dictant”, in which schoolchildren participated at the end of April 2024. All participants received diplomas of participation, and the winners were presented with memorable gifts.
