The essence of the educational and patriotic campaign “Dictation of Victory” consists in testing knowledge of the history of the Great Patriotic War and, consequently, increasing historical literacy and patriotic education of young people.
The first “Dictation of Victory” was conducted on May 7, 2019, in all 85 regions of the Russian Federation, as well as in 23 foreign countries (not only in the CIS and SCO countries, but also in a number of European states, such as Germany, Austria, Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria , Slovenia, Serbia, Turkey). 1373 venues were allocated for the participants of the campaign (including 42 venues at Rossotrudnichestvo offices abroad). More than 5.5 thousand volunteers were involved. The Museum of the Great Patriotic War became the main site of the campaign. A live link-up was organized there broadcasting the speeches of honored guests and announcing the start of the “Dictation of Victory“.
In total, more than 105 thousand people took part in the “Dictation of Victory” in 2019, including 3027 abroad. Moreover, more than 47 thousand people passed the “Dictation” online through the website within the first days.
On June 24, 2020, the winners of the 2019 “Dictation of Victory” became guests of the anniversary Victory Parade on Red Square in Moscow.
In 2020, the “Dictation of Victory” is timed to the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
The number of participants is expected to grow by several times in 2020, since the “Dictation of Victory” is envisaged to be held in all cities and towns of the Russian Federation with at least 5 thousand residents.
The number of states participating in the “Dictation of Victory” is also expected to be increased by attracting countries of the anti-Hitler coalition and Eurasian states not having taken part in the “Dictation of Victory” last year.
