Abstract:Everyone in Russia has been preparing to the 75th anniversary of the victory in World War Two despite the fact that the state-level commemoration events are being impeded by the global disaster which may be compared to a world war: the COVID‑19 pandemic. Like a war, it will eventually end but the memory about the anniversary must and will live on. Therefore, the subject of the article is topical: commemoration light and memory in light of an eternal flame and artistic and sacral illumination (Tribute in Light, like it was in New York in 2001). Numerous issues of architectural lighting of memorial sites and monuments in different Russian cities are under consideration. Positive and negative examples of light design solutions are described. It is also noted that information on contemporary state of this area is extremely insufficient.
