The international motor rally started on April 17 and is timed to coincide with the celebration of May 9. Its name is also symbolic: “Victory is one for all.”

20 Russian motorists took to the track in seven GAZ M-20 Pobeda cars manufactured in the 1930s-1940s, Ca-News reports. 

Yugra Governor Natalya Komarova, while on a working visit to Nizhnevartovsk, gave the start of the seventh motor rally. According to her, this project is a kind of contribution of the inhabitants of the Autonomous Okrug to perpetuate the memory of those who defended our Motherland during the Great Patriotic War, MK reports. 

The route runs through the territory of Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, where the cortege will visit Tashkent and Samarkand. The arrival of participants in Uzbekistan is tentatively scheduled for April 28 from the territory of Kazakhstan (via Shymkent). 

For the preparation of the report, the participants will be filming and photographing throughout the journey. Meetings with veterans, home front workers and youth are planned at the stops. Flowers will be laid at the memorials of the fallen soldiers of World War II.
