On April 27, the delegation of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, while on a working visit to Uzbekistan, visited the Victory Park and the Museum of Glory in Tashkent, the capital of the Republic.

Victory Park is dedicated to perpetuating the heroism of the people of Uzbekistan, who made a huge contribution to ensuring victory in World War II.

The initiative to create a memorial complex belongs to the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev. It was implemented in a short time on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in World War II.

The territory of the complex is divided into several parts, which, in accordance with the plan, reflect the zones of the horrors of war and the zones of heroism, stamina and selflessness of warriors, the zone of sorrow, as well as the zone of joy and gratitude.

The Museum of Glory is the main pavilion of the park with an exposition dedicated to the history of Uzbekistan's participation in World War II. With the help of modern technologies and interactive stands, the museum has combined numerous historical facts and events of those distant war years.

Above the museum, on top of a man-made barrow, there is a sculptural composition "Eternal Feat".

On the same day, members of the delegation visited the Square of Memory and Honor. The central figure of the memorial is the sculpture "Grieving Mother". There is the Eternal Flame in front of the sculpture.

On both sides of the "Grieving Mother" are marble pavilions. Their length is 60 meters. Fragments of the Book of Memory are installed in the figured niches. The names of soldiers from Uzbekistan who died or went missing in 1941-1945 are engraved on its pages.

Members of the delegation of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly honored the memory of the heroes and laid flowers at the sculpture "Grieving Mother".

Sculptor Ilkhom Dzhaborov managed to reliably convey the image of a mother who continues to wait for the return of her son even after she had received a "death notice". The monument is surrounded by a marble parapet with the inscription: "You are always in our hearts, dear."
