“I greet you on behalf of the Governor of the Ryazan Region, Nikolai Viktorovich Lyubimov. Dear Mikhailovites, I came to you with a portrait of my mother Alexandra Sergeevna Ushakova. Here at the bottom right of this photo is the date – 1945. Then she was only 17 years old. And she went to work at 14. She worked at the Kashirskaya state district power station and on the railway, so she looks a little older than her years. Then they did everything to ensure that the Victory came as quickly as possible.
On the other side of the picture is my mother’s medal. This is not a picture, this is a real medal, which she received at the same time, in the summer of 1945. For valiant work during the Great Patriotic War. She very rarely wore this award. She kept saying that she didn’t do anything special, she just worked. She worked so that the Victory would come. I mean, we all have to work hard. Our new victory over Nazism is also not far off. And here, in such small towns of the Ryazan region, we must bring it closer with all our might. Thank you very much for participating in this meeting and keeping the memory of the heroes.”

We will be worthy of the glory of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers, we will not allow fascism to come to our Motherland.”
