Chepurin presents medals to three Serbian WWII veterans

KIKINDA - Russia's Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin on Monday presented Russian anniversary state medals to three Serbian war veterans from Kikinda for their contribution to the victory over fascism in World War II.

The distinguished honours, awarded by a decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War II, were presented to Zdravko Ljiljak, Lazar Udicki and Bogdan Vidicki.

Commemorations of significant dates such as May 9, the Victory Day, are an opportunity for us to remember the great sacrifice of the two nations - the Russians and the Serbs - and the great heroes to whom humanity owes gratitude, TV Vojvodina quoted Chepurin as noting.
