The participants of the event will set a new record that will be entered into the Russian Book of Records as the longest accelerated march committed on the Armored Vehicles.

    The culmination of this action will be the participation of members of the Armored Vehicles Rally in commemorative events which will take place in the city of Brest on June 22.

    The organizer of the "The Road of Courage" action - MILITARY-TECHNICAL SOCIETY - sees the main task of this Armored Vehicles Rally to pay tribute to the memory of the heroes who fought for our Motherland during the Great Patriotic War, as well as the strengthening of cultural ties between Russia and other states - members of the CIS.

    In total the Armored Vehicles Rally will overcome more than 2300 kilometers. Members of the action will take part in 20 commemorative events on the territory of Russia and Belarus. The route of the event completely coincides with the places of defense of our troops in 1941. About 6 million people will be able to watch live this action "The Road of Courage", while 15 million will have the opportunity to see it on TV and on the Internet.

    The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko are invited to take part in the Armored vehicles Rally. Invitational letters with proposals to support the initiative to conduct the Armored Vehicles Rally were sent to the presidents of the CIS countries. The solemn start ceremony will be attended by the representatives of diplomatic missions of the CIS countries.

    The Armored vehicles Rally will be held with support of the Republic of Belarus, Moscow Patriarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church, ONT TV channel, Newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, Historical and Cultural Complex “Stalin Line” (Republic of Belarus), Belarusian Republican Youth Union.

    The action "The Road of Courage" was highly appreciated and supported by the Moscow City Administration and by the Metropolitan Police.

    "This action is remarkable for the fact that it unites both private individuals, owners of demilitarized vehicles, volunteers, veterans and just sympathetic citizens of Russia and Belarus. We all share a common history, common values that are based on unshakable concepts: memory, culture, Motherland. Today it is extremely important that as many people as possible join the action "The Way of Courage". After all, from the social support of such events depends the future perception of the Great Patriotic War both in Russia and throughout the CIS countries.

    Today neither in Russia, nor in the territory of Belarus, there are no patriotic events of such format. We hope that holding of The Armored Vehicles Rally "The Road of Courage" will become a good tradition for the residents of Russia and Belarus”, - says the chairman of the MILITARY-TECHNICAL SOCIETY Alexey Migalin.
