Belarusians celebrate Tankman Day

A large-scale event dedicated to Tankmen Day was held in Minsk on September 10. 200 hectares in the Victory Park in the Belarus capital Minsk were equipped for thematic zones, playgrounds, sports, children's playgrounds. Everyone had an opportunity to become a true gunner or crew commander.

Participating in the event was the Minsk mayor. Andrei Shorets arrived on the holiday on an armored vehicle.

Andrei Shorets, Minsk Mayor:
When we received a proposal to unite the military holiday with the people's holiday, Minsk City Day, we supported it. We offered Victory Park - our popular place for celebrations. And today my official car is this perfect Volat.

The holiday became another occasion to celebrate, besides the celebrations timed to the 950th anniversary of Minsk.

In the evening on September 9, Minsk residens and guests of the capital enjoyed a fireworks display timed to the 950th anniversary of Minsk. Please find the attached video to watch the evening fireworks on Minsk City Day 2017.
