National Unity Day was established in memory of the events of 1612, when the people’s militia led by Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky liberated Moscow from the Polish invaders. Historically, this holiday is associated with the end of the Time of Troubles in Russia in the 17th century. Representatives of all classes and all peoples that were part of the Russian state took part in the national militia, in the liberation of the Russian land from foreign invaders. and expel the Poles from Moscow. This victory served as a powerful impetus for the revival of the Russian state. And the icon became a subject of special reverence. In the middle of the 17th century, the obligatory celebration of November 4 was established as a day of gratitude to the Most Holy Theotokos for her help in liberating Russia from the Poles. This day entered the church calendar as the Celebration of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God in memory of the deliverance of Moscow and Russia from the Poles.
