It took few days Novosibirsk activists to organize an event commemorating Defender of the Fatherland Day. They got an agreement of certain apartment tenants to switch lights on/off in order to form the word “Russia”.
According to organizers: “As the form of patriotism, the idea was to show city residents, that our country is our home. We wanted Russians to feel like a big, happy family.”
Ironically, one fifth floor apartment stayed dark, thus leading to the incomplete word.
