At 4 a.m. on June 22, 1941 fascist Germany invaded the USSR without the declaration of war. Hitler boasted that he would smash the Soviet Union in 5-6 weeks. But his plan didn’t realize. Our people defended their Motherland for 1418 days and nights heroically. This war finished with the victory of the USSR on May 9, 1945. This year we’ll celebrate the 72th anniversary of this Great Victory. Now we are going to speak about the deeds of our people during the Great Patriotic War.

Not only grown-ups defended our country during the war. There were many young heroes who gave their lives for the Motherland. One of them was Zina Portnova.


Before the war Zina, or Romashka, as the partisans called her, was a school girl. She lived in Leningrad.

When the summer holidays of 1941 came, Zina, who was 14 years old at that time, went together with her younger sister to a village near Vitebsk, to their grandmother. The war broke out. Zina and her sister could not come back to Leningrad. They stayed in the village. Zina decided to do all she could to help her people. Soon she joined a partisan unit.

Zina was very brave girl. She spread leaflets among the villagers, she told them about the heroic fight near Moscow. (p.3)

In 1942 the partisans destroyed the railways and bridges of the enemy and Zina took part in it too. She learned to shoot very well.

The fascist officers were looking for the partisans. In 1943 they caught some partisans. Zina was among them. They beat her, but she didn’t say anything.

“Where are the partisans?” shouted the officer. Zina did not say a word. Again they beat her bitterly and again the officer shouted: “Where are the partisans?”

Zina was looking into the officer’s face, but she said nothing.

Suddenly Zina saw a revolver on officer’s table. She quickly took it up and shot the officer. Then she jumped out into the yard and ran across the garden to the river that was near the house. She was a good swimmer and she hoped to swim across the river to the other bank where she knew the partisans were. But the fascist soldiers were running after her. They caught her at the river. The young partisan perished but did not surrender. She died for the happiness of the people.

Now one of the streets in St. Petersburgh is named after her.

The war was broke out – Разразилась война.

She spread leaflets among the villagers – Она распространяла листовки среди жителей деревни.

But the numbers of veterans become fewer from year to year. Time takes that historic day farther away from us, but we always must remember it because it is closely related with our grandparents or great grandparents who did all to bring this victory closer. Our country lost more than 40 million of people in that war and saved the world from fascism. We should never forget those who gave their lives for our Motherland.
