The Heydar Aliyev Foundation congratulates veterans of the Great Patriotic War

As it has been in previous years, this time too, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation visited veterans of the Great Patriotic War on the Day of Victory - May 9th. Due to the fact that the 75th anniversary of the Victory is not celebrated with solemn festive events because of the coronavirus pandemic, our veterans were congratulated this year in a different format.


Following the instruction of First Vice-president of the Republic of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva, veterans of the 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War were congratulated at their homes.


Congratulated on the Victory Day - May 9th, the war veterans were presented jubilee medals in connection with the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1945-2020) conferred on by a Resolution of President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.


Moreover, festive tables were laid at homes of 256 veterans across the republic, delivering them holiday gifts from the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.


Our fellow-citizens who have demonstrated courage in securing the great Victory were once more congratulated on the holiday, mentioning that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and First Vice-president Mehriban Aliyeva have always taken care of the veterans.
