Dear mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters! The happiness of our renunion is boundless. The heart of every soviet cirizen sings with joy, the joy of victory! We have all waited for this happy moment. We dreamed of it in the darkest hours of our struggle. But we’ll never forget those who lie silent on the battlefield. Years will pass, our cities will rise again, and our wounds may one day be forgotten. Let one thing remain in our hearts, a cold hatred of war! We deeply feel the grief of those who cannot meet their loved ones today. We must all take a vow to keep our promise that sweethearts will never again be parted by war, that mothers may never again fear for their children, that our brave fathers may not stealthily swallow their tears. We have won and remained alive, not for destruction but to build a new life!
