This is an opportunity to honor the memory of our relatives and friends who heroically fell in the Great Patriotic War. Those who gave us freedom and a future by sacrificing their lives. A large number of Dagestanis took part in the action. They came with their families, with children, they brought photographs of their relatives so that the front-line soldiers marched with us in the same regiment. Today I carried a photo of my fellow countryman, hero of Russia Gadzhimagomed Nurmagomedov, who died in the line of duty during a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine,” said the Minister of Youth Affairs of the Republic of Dagestan Kamil Saidov.
