1941, the 22nd of June,

The sky with the rising moon,

At 4 in the early morning,

Without any warning,

When children peacefully slept,

Hitler the most horrible plan kept.

It was Sunday.
Today it’s the saddest day
In the history
Of my long-suffering country.

Hitler broke the non-aggression pact
And my motherland was attacked.
The Great Patriotic War had started
With a peaceful life, the land had parted.

Many years have passed since then,
No one wants the war to repeat.
We remember the glorious defenders
Who fought for the fascist surrenders.

The Memorial Day is today.
No one shouts “Hurray!”
The Day of Memory and Grief.
But with the hope and belief we live
That horror will never happen.
Peaceful life should be the canon.

Eternal memory to the heroes!
They fought for life without sorrow.
