Once a year on the victory day on may 9 veterans of the Second world war goes on Poklonnaya hill in Moscow (literally bow-hill).

Tens of thousands of people comes there with the children and the flowers and the words of gratitude.

Have already passed 67 years, as the war is over, and with each year of veterans is becoming fewer.

Now I have to make an effort to find in a crowd the old people with the orders.

The war claimed tens of millions lifes. Today in 2012, the population of men in Russia to 10 million less than that of women.
