A Memory Escort group from Primorye arrived on Wednesday in the Chinese city of Suifenhe
The group consists of Second World War veterans, and representatives of veteran and public organizations and mass media. In Suifenhe they laid flowers and wreaths at the Memorial of Glory and paid respects to the memory of Soviet soldiers, as well as planted the Lane of Friendship to mark the 60th anniversary of the victory. Tree saplings had been specially delivered for the occasion from Primorye. Veterans will also visit graves of Soviet fighting men who died during the Second World War, and in the evening Chinese and Russian performers will give a concert in the city's main square. The present memory escort is the third and final. On May 3-5, similar escorts toured the places of military glory of Soviet soldiers in the North Korean city of Chongding and the Chinese city of Hutou. Altogether, in China there are 50 monuments to Soviet Army men who were killed during the Second World War. In the Far East, celebrations dedicated to the 60th anniversary of victory did not end on May 9. In September, Primorye is preparing to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War. It was there, in Russia's Far East, that the bloodiest war in human history ended. In August 8, 1945, in accordance with the obligations assumed at the Crimean (Yalta) conference on February 4-11, 1945, the USSR declared war on and, on August 9, began military operations against Japan - an ally of Hitler Germany on the Pacific. Following the defeat by the Red Army of the Japanese forces in Manchuria (North-East of China), Japan signed an instrument of unconditional surrender on September 2, 1945.
