When we, the grandchildren, asked him to tell us about the war, he always said: I do not want you or your children have experienced the horrors that we had. It is important for me that my children know about the war. They know that not the Americans won it, but the Soviet people did”, said the Chairman of the Association of Russian Culture in Ankara Larisa Lutkova-Tyurkkan.
