Victory Day in the Philippines

The events dedicated to the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War, organized by the Russian Embassy in the Philippines, were held at the Consulate of the Russian Federation in Manila and at the construction site of the temple in honor of the Icon of the Mother of God “Quick to Hear” on Panglao Island. As 79 years ago, these days coincided with the Bright Week, when Heaven and earth celebrate the Great Victory over death, which took place two thousand years ago. The Easter prayers were attended by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation M. I. Pavlov, representatives of the diplomatic corps and compatriots living in the Philippines.
