Nowadays terrorism is one of the most important threats to the security of the mankind and generally to the modern world.
The 3rd of September is the newest commemorative date of Russia. It was formally approved in 2005 by the federal law “About the Days of War Glory of Russia”.
Since then commemorable events dedicated to the Day of Solidarity in the fight against terrorism are held in Kursk every year.
On the 2nd and 3rd of September, 2017 the foreign students and staff members of the Kursk state medical university took part in the peace-making actions, which were held in the secondary general school №30 of Kursk and at the memorial «In memory of the fallen in the years of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945».
Those present were told about the terroristic conflicts, which happened in the world and in our country, about the terrible events in Beslan, as well as about the measures taken for the rescue of hostages and the behavior in such extreme situations. At the close of the events white balloons were released into the sky in commemoration of the children, whose lives stopped suddenly at the hands of terrorists.
Each of us shall be obliged to exercise responsibility and vigilance, as nobody is insured against getting into such a horrible situation. And the best prevention of extremistic public moods is tolerance and mutual respect. We must respect the cultural and religious peculiarities of all the nations.
