Памятная церемония у памятника Советской армии в городе Свидник (Словакия) 10/05/2015 Commemorative ceremony at the monument of the Soviet Army in the town of Svidnik (Slovakia). This is a memorial service by the Orthodox faithful and clergy on the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the end of the war. Svidnik is relatively close to the Dukla Pass separating Slovakia and Poland where the Red Army  faced off against the Germans in the fall of 1944, over 70,000 casualties were incurred by both armies. This is nearby my family's ancestral villages. The singing is a good example of the Rusyn chant, well sung and well paced. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_uzUCwB_Go

Thanks for sharing this. Just curious- are they Orthodox or Greek Catholic?
