VGP - A ceremony was held in Ha Noi on May 3 to mark the 73rd anniversary of the victory of the Great Patriotic War (May 9, 1945-2018).

Addressing the ceremony, Russian Consul General in HCM City Aleksei Vladimirovich Popov said the celebration has contributed to enhancing the relations between Viet Nam and Russia.

President of HCM City’s Viet Nam-Russia Friendship Association Hoang Minh Nhan recalled the Great Patriotic War 73 years ago which killed 27 million Soviet people and destroyed hundreds of cities and villages. 

The former Soviet Union suffered the most during the World War II (1941-1945), he said, noting that Vietnamese and Russian people have carried forward the spirit of the victory and tightened their fine relationship. 

The ceremony featured a musical concert and a procession, with participants bringing with them photos of soldiers from both nations who once joined the Great Patriotic War.
