Every year, on the Day of Memory and Sorrow 22 June, active members of the Youth Council and staff of Tverenergo gather at 4:00 am, to honour the memory of those who defended our Motherland during the Great Patriotic War, to learn more about those terrible years.

This year Tver power engineers drove a column and visited several memorial graves: the Victory Obelisk, the fraternal military grave in the village of Migalovo of the regional capital, memorials in the villages of Nekrasovo and Shulgino, where this year on the eve of the Day of the Great Victory Tverenergo’s staff conducted a Saturday clean-up event and restoration work. Tverenergo’s employees observed a minute’s silence in memory of victims of the Great Patriotic War, lit candles and laid flowers to the memorial.

"To take part in such an event for me was a matter of conscience, honour and duty to people who gave everything for the Victory. It is very pleasant to work in an organization that carefully keeps the memory of the heroic deed of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers," said Ilya Kovtunov, an engineer of relay protection and automation of IDGC of Centre - Tverenergo division.
