Moscow is decorated to celebrate the Victory Day

Москву украсили ко Дню Победы

Pyotr Biryukov, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Utilities and Improvement, informed journalists that professionals of the City Services Department had decorated Moscow with flags and ornamental structures to make the Russian capital ready to celebrate the Victory Day.

“Due to the complicated epidemic situation,” Mr. Biryukov said, “the festivities are postponed, but still, for the Russians, the 9th of May is one of the most important and sacred holidays. And of course, on the eve of the Great Victory Day, we have decorated Moscow, the hero city. Flags and flag structures decorating the railings of the city’s major bridges as well as its squares adjacent to railway stations and the city entrance points became the main decoration pieces.”

According to Mr. Biryukov, festive flags are decorating the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, the Novoarbatsky Bridge, and the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge as well as Kutuzovsky Prospekt, Frunzenskaya Embankment, and the city’s central squares.

Mr. Biryukov also said that the figure of 75, the Victory Anniversary Date, became the central piece of the city decoration concept as well as most of its decorative elements.

Mr. Biryukov has also mentioned the Order of Victory and the Victory Fireworks decorative structures were placed near the Ministry of Defence building on Frunzenskaya Embankment, while the Arch of Triumph is decorated with the huge star “Moscow, the Hero City”.

The Head of the City Services Department has also asserted that no extra procurements were made to decorate the city for the 9th of May. “We have reused all the decorative elements,” Mr. Biryukov added, “by re-decorating them and replacing the festive flags. Earlier, we have ensured enough stock of 3D decorative elements that are now decorating the city”.
