Victory Day in Russia commemorates the millions of people who lost their lives in the Second World War and honors the bravery of Soviet soldiers, the Allied forces, and Russian people on the whole whose heroism saved Europe from Nazi invaders.
In remembrance and appreciation of WWII veterans and Holocaust victims, the Diana Bagrationi Foundation and VK Studios are honored to present a very special event – a solo performance of the legendary Russian-American composer and singer Villi Tokarev, who is turning 80 years old this year.
This charity event is generously supported by The Consulates Generals of Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan; the leading Russian-language television network, RTVi, RACH-C (the Russian American Cultural Heritage Center) and the Bagrationi Foundation’s patrons.
The Diana Bagrationi Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization established for the purpose of providing humanitarian assistance to those in need, particularly children and elderly individuals with life-threatening illnesses or other life crises. All proceeds from events organized by the Foundation go to the hospitals, providing treatment for pediatric cancer patients in the US and abroad, as well as community educational and cultural initiatives to support extraordinarily gifted children and their families.
