PARIS: November 19, 2018
The Union of the Descendants of the Russians of Gallipoli makes an appeal

General Baron Wrangel established the Society of Gallipoli on November 22, 1921, exactly one year after the arrival of the first wave of Russian Army to Gallipoli.

In memory of this event, the General Directorate of the Union of the Descendants of the Russians of Gallipoli decided that every year, on the Saturday closest to November 22, memorial pannikhidas should be performed wherever members and supporters live.

On November 24, 2018, the UDRG calls upon everyone to pray for our fathers and forefathers, the heroes of the White Movement and all the victims of the Bolshevik yoke.

A century ago, the Bolshevik Yakov Yurovsky led a military detail which executed Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra Feodorovna, the four Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatyana, Maria and Anastasia and the Tsesarevich Alexey, along with their faithful servants, in the basement of Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg.
We ask everyone to arrange for pannikhidas in their local parishes.
We ask that all those who organize such service inform the UDRG at: contact@udcrg.org

Holy Royal Passion-Bearers pray to God for us!
General Directorate of the Union of the Descendants of the Russians of Gallipoli.
