On Tuesday "memory escorts" left the Maritime Territory
On Tuesday "memory escorts" left the Maritime Territory - the Far-Eastern region of Russia on the western coast of the Sea of Japan -for a tour of the places of Soviet soldiers' battlefield glory in China and North Korea. The "escorts" consist of frontline veterans, young people and journalists. As the press centre of the Maritime Territory's administration reported, the action is timed to the 60th anniversary of the Victory over Nazism. Its participants will visit the burials of Soviet soldiers fallen during the World War II during the liberation of China and North Korea, and lay flowers at the tombs and monuments. There are more than 400 burials of the Soviet Army's soldiers who perished during World War II on the territory of China and the DPRK. On August 8, 1945, after the capitulation of Germany, in keeping with the allied obligations assumed at the Crimean conference (of the leaders of three states of the anti-Hitler coalition - Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill in Yalta, February 4-11, 1945), the Soviet Union declared war on Japan.
