Seventy-five paintings by artists from twenty-five countries were exhibited in the Moscow Region. As part of the Angels of the World art project, which will be presented in the spring months in ten countries, the paintings will be combined in a large canvas more than ninety meters long. The final point of the project will take place in Moscow as part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, the Rossotrudnichestvo website reports.

Historian writer Alex Gromov, who spoke at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, emphasized that fierce battles occured at the very place that hosted the exhibition. The victory in these battles helped the Soviet army save Moscow from the enemy.

Participants and guests of the art project laid flowers at the local church of the Archangel Michael, built in memory of the soldiers who fell for their homeland in the battles of World War II. The organizers of the event also held a master class at which everyone could learn to draw an angel of the world.
