October 29 is World Stroke Day

On October 29, the Ostankino TV Tower will be coloured in red to support campaign "Dress in red", which annually helds by the Russia society of cardiology. The aim of this action is to raise people's awareness of the cardiovascular diseases' risks and to show them possible harm that many people get because of unhealthy lifestyle. Nowadays that problem is especially actual - often COVID-19 causes severe consequences in people with cardiovascular diseases.

In the evening, from 18.00 to 22.00, a huge beating heart on red background will appear at media facade of the TV Tower. It will symbolize caring for yourself and people closest to you, continuation of life despite of any circumstances.
