Deputy of the state Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Yevgeny Primakov shared his impression of visiting the Bender fortress. "It is noticeable with what love to the city, to the earth this Park is made. Built and exhibition hall, reconstructed citadel. It seems to me that there will be a lot of people here and not on the occasion of the opening. This is a place where you can come to feel the air of history, which went  through the Bendery, through this land. Now we remember a lot The Russian Empire – this is its frontier, its border, there were the most fierce wars with the conquerors-the Turks. Here history is felt as nowhere else. And so this place will be such a magnet for people who appreciate their history, culture and love their land," the Russian guest stressed.
