World’s largest St. George Ribbon made its appearance in Moldova.

The Ribbon of St George or St. George’s Ribbon (Russian: Георгиевская ленточка, G’yeorgiyevskaya l’yentochka) constitutes one of the most recognised and respected symbols of military valour in modern Russia. It is widely associated with the commemoration of World War II and especially with the units who were awarded the collective Guard battle honours during the conflict.

In most recent events, the ribbon is widely used by the separatist movement in East Ukraine, due to which the ribbon has been tabooed by Ukrainian nationalists and several eastern European countries that view Russia as an enemy.
