BUENOS AIRES, May 7. /TASS/. The "Immortal Regiment" march dedicated to Victory Day has been held in Argentina’s capital on Saturday.
At least 80 participants marched through Buenos Aires’ Rivadavia Park with portraits of their relatives who fought during the Second World War. Families with children and young people were among the marchers. They were eager to exchange stories about their great-grandmothers and great-grandfathers featured in the photos. Argentines relaxing in the park showed interest in the event and asked questions about the "Immortal Regiment" action.
Chairwoman of the Russian Compatriots’ Coordination Council Silvana Yarmolyuk told TASS that Argentina was the first South American nation that officially joined the march.
"We have undertaken an obligation to carry out the march every year," she said.
The "Immortal Regiment" march was held for the first time in 2012 in Siberia’s Tomsk. In 2013 some Russian, Kazakh and Ukrainian cities joined the campaign.
On May 9, 2015 when the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany was celebrated the "Immortal Regiment" marched through the streets of 500 cities across the world with some 12 million people carrying photographs of their ancestors who fought in World War II.
Russian President Vladimir Putin joined the march in Moscow with a portrait of his father.
