The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović sent congratulations to the citizens of the Republic of Srpska on the occasion of May 9 – the Day of Victory over Fascism in the Second World War and the Europe Day.
“World War II represents the largest and most tragic armed conflict in the history of mankind.
On this brightest historical date, we proudly remember the role of our people in creating a better and more just world and its significant contribution to the great victory of humanity over Nazism and Fascism.
We are proud that, as one of the victorious nations, we participated in the relentless struggle for freedom, victory over the forces of darkness, justice over evil.
The immeasurable sacrifice made by the Serb people obliges us to never give up the glorious history, ideals and values whose achievements are deeply woven into our society, which inherits freedom, peace and tolerance.
“The Republic of Srpska, which incorporates the values of the anti-fascist struggle and the Defensive-Patriotic War, remains committed to the libertarian ideas, the struggle for a better society and striving for modern civilisational values”, reads the congratulation message by the President of the Republic of Srpska.
