Today I offer you another theme for discussion. I think you’ll agree with me that in our country there are a lot of holidays to be celebrated. Among them National Unity Day, which was established on December 16, 2004, by the State Duma of Russian Federation. This holiday was organized to commemorate the popular revolution led by Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky, which turned out the Polish aggressors from Moscow in November 1612, and the conclusion of the Time of Troubles and foreign involvement in Russia.
The idea of Unity Day is to unite all the classes
of Russian society in order to protect Russian statehood.
Let me invite you to do the tasks of this web-quest! Here you’ll get information about a local sheriff Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky.
