"This city has a much bigger potential and wed could possibly bring together two to three times more participants than we did today but many people simply didn’t know the Immortal Regiment action would take place in Montreal on Monday," Dmitrieyv said. "The organizers will take account of all the shortcomings" when preparing the next action.
The column traversed the downtown Ste.-Catherine Street from the crossing with Guy Street to the crossing with Union Street. Dmitriyev pointed out the friendliness and cooperativeness of the police.
Also on the same time, an airplane waving a banner that showed the St. George’s Ribbon, the main symbol of combat valor in Russia, could be seen in the skies over downtown Montreal.
"The banner was 3 meters wide and 75 meters long and the St George’s Ribbon covered 60% of is surface," Dmitriyev said. "The remaining part had an English inscription saying May 9 Victory Day."
