"Day of Remembrance and Sorrow"

The Day of Remembrance and Sorrow on June 22 is the anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. It was on this day in the summer of 1941 that the bloodiest and most terrible war in the history of our country began, which was the main part of the Second World War of 1939-1945.
A lot of historical works have been written about the location of Soviet and German troops along the western border of the USSR by June 22, 1941, a deep analysis of the forces with which the Soviet Union and Germany approached the brutal four-year battle that claimed tens of millions of lives. However, historians still cannot give an exact answer to the question – who exactly sixty minutes before the official start of the war, at three o'clock in the morning, began the bombing of Sevastopol? Who wrote the first chapter in the history of June 22 as a Day of Remembrance and Mourning?
