“Standing in the Victory Park today, I sincerely congratulate our esteemed veterans and all our people on this holiday. At these moments, we remember our heroic ancestors and bow to their courage. Their multifaceted path of life, dedicated to peace and freedom, is a great and timeless legacy for future generations,” President Mirziyoyev said.
