St. George Ribbon Campaign in Moscow

The annual campaign to hand out St. George Ribbons in the run-up to the May 9 Victory in Europe Day started in Russia and more than 70 other countries.

 

St. George Ribbon campaign to distribute black-and-orange ribbons – a symbol of the Soviet victory and military glory in World War II – is organized by the Rossiya Segodnya news agency and the youth organization Student Community, with support from the Moscow government.

The St. George Ribbon campaign will last until May 9. In the next two weeks, organizers will distribute over 20 million ribbons in Russia and abroad.

The campaign was initiated in 2005, and since then it has become a tradition to wear the ribbon ahead of May 9 celebrations. For millions of people in Russia and former Soviet countries, the St. George Ribbon is a manifestation of national memory, a bond between generations and a link to former military glory.
