April 25, 2021: thousands of people showed up at three consecutive subbotniks in Taganrog. During these community spring cleanings Taganrog Local Government employees, Taganrog City Council staff, factory workers, volunteers and activists planted trees and bushes, picked up trash and loose tree branches, removed graffitis, cleaned up green spaces and planted flowers.
Another subbotnik was held at Taganrog's historical Old Christian Cemetery. It was supported by Presidential Grants Fund within the framework of "Volunteers Projects: Giving Historical Memory Back to the People"
. The action focused on old and neglected littered areas not accessible by vehicles.
Among the people who volunteered to participate were student groups from local universities, college and professional schools inspired by the lectures held within the framework of the grant, but also many residents who learnt about it from social networks. Participants of the community spring cleaning at the Old Cemetery gathered around 64 cubic meters of garbage within just a few hours. Tools, individual protective gear, water and snacks were provided by organizers and local authorities.
