NEW YORK, May 9. /TASS/. The Immortal Regiment event, called upon to keep the memory of those killed in the Second World War, took place on Sunday in the U.S. city of San Francisco (California).
More than 700 people participated in the march held in the city for the second time.
One of the event’s organizers, Yelena Nuzhnova, told TASS that the march lasted for about an hour. Its participants with banners and portraits of their relatives who fought in World War II, accompanied by Soviet-time songs, marched along Embarcadero waterfront and roadway in the port of San Francisco.
On Saturday, the Immortal Regiment event occurred in six other U.S. cities - New York, Orlando (Florida), Chicago (Illinois), Seattle (Washington), Denver (Colorado) and Houston (Texas). Hundreds of people took part in each of the marches. On Sunday, the march was also held in Washington, D.C.
The Immortal Regiment public event was first held in the Siberian city of Tomsk in 2012. In 2013, it was already held in 120 cities, and in 2014, in 500 cities and towns in seven countries. The action officially became all-Russian since 2015.
The event is a demonstration during which people carry photographs of their relatives who participated in the Second World War. It is timed to the Victory Day and is held in Russia and other countries.
