So, thanks to the support of power engineers of Lipetskenergo in February 2013 in the Lipetsk region in commemoration of the Defender of the Motherland Day a large-scale students' conference was held, devoted to one of the best examples of patriotism of the Russian people, manifested in the Voronezh-Kastornoye operation in 1943, which ended with the release of the Lipetsk region from German invaders.
