This cult ofthe St. George ribbons andwar veterans has taken ongrotesque proportions. Not only are officials andordinary citizens ready totake offense atany passing remark, but they seem tohave forgotten thefar more obvious andimportant question ofthe veterans themselves. Forexample, this year marks the69th anniversary ofthe victory inWorld War II. It happens that theaverage lifespan forRussians is also 69— andfor men it is even shorter. Thepoint is, if any veterans are still alive, they must be very few innumber. Every year thecity honors its veterans ofthe Great Patriotic War andposts its reports online. In2004, Moscow had 108,000 veterans. Five years later, in2009, thenumber had more than doubled to272,000. Inanother three years, in2012, theoriginal number had tripled to340,000 veterans.

The ban on the St. George ribbon by the Latvian parliament is a continuation of the rabid policy of Russophobia, alienation from Russia, discrimination against Russians on the territory of the country … The Russian Foreign Ministry should more actively advocate for compatriots, apply diplomatic measures, including political and economic sanctions and criminal prosecution of Russophobic politicians,” Baltija.eu quotes a member of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights Alexander Brod.

The bans, however, do not extend to the St. George ribbon, which has its origins in the reign of Catherine the Great but was only formally resurrected by Russia in 2000.Already in Putin's Russia, St. George's Ribbon began to be promoted as the main symbol of victory in the Second World War. It began with the actions that RIA Novosti and Russian loyalist student organizations had been organizing since 2005. When the Maidan began in Ukraine, the ribbon was used as a symbol first by anti-Maidan supporters and then by Russian separatists. For The Second class one should win a Campaign. The first recipient was Lieutenant-General Plemyannikov for the Battle of Kagul, the last of 124 or 125, depending on sources, was either Nikolai Yudenich or Marshal of France Ferdinand Foch.

Among everyone else in the streets of Moscow, one can even spot Chinese tourists wearing the ribbons. KYIV -- Ukrainian officials have confirmed reports that Marianna Budanova, the wife of the chief of the country's military intelligence service, had been poisoned with "heavy metals" and is in hospital for treatment, in what appears to represent the most serious targeting of a family member of Ukraine's leadership since Russia launched its full-scale invasion in February 2022.Today, more than 45 million ribbons are being distributed throughout the world including in Ukraine, Estonia, Germany, Britain, the US, and China. I think all of that will come together in the coming days.

Russia has denied deliberately targeting civilians although more than 10,000 have been killed since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022, according to the United Nations.

For some time we experienced a period of rejection, resentment [towards the Soviet past]. Society wanted to write off the outcome of the Great Patriotic War and WWII together with the burden of the Soviet past, together with the stagnation, iron curtain, and poverty. … But, you know, it is difficult for a society to be healthy without emotional and historic pillars to lean on. The deficit of self-respect makes people miserable and immature. In general, it seems the ribbon filled the niche of healthy pride” (in Russians). Ribbons have been distributed under the slogan “I remember. I am proud.” No Oder of St. George during WWII
