The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović extended 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 Europe Day.
“The Day of Victory over Fascism is one of the most important dates in world history and the day when the ideology of terror and evil, that was the cause of killing more than 55 million people during the Second World War, was defeated. Marking the Victory Day, we pay tribute to all the victims of the anti-fascist struggle, which remind us of the great evil that trapped the whole world.
On this day, which, at the same time, is the Europe Day, we should also recall the great historical role of our people in the creation of a free Europe. For the liberal Serb people, the Day of Victory over Fascism is of particular importance, given its unmeasurable contribution to the anti-fascist struggle.
This is a day of remembrance for all those who have embroidered their lives in creating a better and more tolerant world, a free and democratic Europe”, reads the congratulation note of the President of the Republic of Srpska.
