VLADIVOSTOK, May 9. /TASS/. More than 50,000 people on Monday marched in Immortal Regiment columns in the Russian Far Eastern Primorye Territory.
The most massive actions took place in Vladivostok, Artyom, Nakhodka, Ussuriysk, Dalnerechensk, the Nadezhdinsky, Shkotovsky and Khasansky districts, the regional administration said.
In Vladivostok alone, over 30,000 people marched along the city’s central streets. One of the action’s participants was regional governor Vladimir Miklushevsky.
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.
