FEEDBACK AND GREETINGS
«Dear guests of the VII Grand Sevastopol Charity Officers' Ball «Victory»! I congratulate you with this long-awaited beautiful event! It is natural and symbolic that it is in Sevastopol, the hero-city of Russian glory, that this noble tradition of Russian balls is being revived. The Officers’ Ball has become one of the hallmarks of Sevastopol . Annually the number of participants increases, the Ball acquires new traditions. It is especially important that this year the Ball is dedicated to the Victory of our people in the Great Patriotic War. The military and civilian couples, like our valiant defenders of Motherland, get together in a dance. The dance in the Great Patriotic War was not just a dance — it was a means of survival. Special front-line concert brigades were created to maintain the spirit of the soldiers. Ordinary city residence during the war also did not stop dancing. And by way of dancing they expressed all their emotions, all their feelings!
I wish all participants of their VII Grand Sevastopol Officers' Ball preserve traditions and history of our great country — Russia! Let this event become the crown jewel of this year, this autumn, the 75th anniversary of Victory and the 180th anniversary of Pyotr Tchaikovsky».
Governor of Sevastopol, 2020
«The tradition of this splendid feat was founded seven years ago. Annually it hosts hundreds of guests from all-over Russia and from foreign states. Today the Sevastopol Officer's Ball is rightfully considered one of the most large-scale cultural events in Crimea reflecting the continuity of generations and eras. The choice of venue is not accidental. Historically Crimea has been of particular importance to Russia. Sevastopol is the symbol of Russian Fleet, officer’s honour, courage and heroism of our soldiers. Today, with the support of the state corporation Rostec, large-scale projects in the field of transport, energy, and social sphere are being implemented here.
This year the Ball is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory and the Day of the hero-city of Sevastopol. We celebrate the 180th anniversary of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and his music will become the jewel of the ball. Such events, undoubtedly, develop not only the sense of beauty, but help preserve common historical, spiritual and moral values.
I with the organizers, the participants and the guests of the VII Grand Sevastopol Charity Officer's Ball sunny mood, good luck and unforgettable encounters!».
