200-year history: Napoleon's army is back to Borodino

People from many European countries and even from the USA and Canada have taken part in the reenactment event. One of the participants who arrived in Russia from Lorraine in the north-east of France says: "The names of ordinary soldiers are forgotten. We know only the great names of marshals and general. I believe that the reenactment must help us recollect all those who took part in the famous battle and render homage to all of them."
