The Garden of Memory campaign continued in Hungary, the Rossotrudnichestvo website reports. Five lime trees were planted in the park near the monument to Soviet soldiers-liberators in the city of Paks.

The trees were planted by Tatyana Kern, Chairman of the Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots Organizations in Hungary, and Ferenc Leber, Deputy Mayor of Paks City. The mass action had to be abandoned due to restrictions aimed at combating the spread of coronavirus infection.

Hungary joined the action in April. The first initiative was supported by the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Budapest.

The project was initiated by the All-Russian public organization Volunteers of Victory, and is included in the program of the Year of Memory and Glory announced in Russia. Among the organizers is also the Victory Commanders Memorial Fund. Earlier, activists announced the achievement of the goal of the action - the number of planted trees exceeded the planned 27 million.

The action became truly nationwide. Since March 18, when its launch was announced, more than 300,000 people have taken part in almost 30,000 landings. The organizers were assisted in organizing the events by about 25,000 volunteers. The action covered 50 countries.
