ULAN-BATOR, 10 March. /TASS/. A group of servicemen of the Mongolian army will take part in a gala parade which will be held in Red Square in Moscow on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the victory in WWII, the "Infomongolia" news portal said on Tuesday.
A group of 80 servicemen no less than 180 centimeters tall have been selected from different units of the Mongolian armed forces to take part in the Moscow parade. At present, they are undergoing an intensive drill in marching skills, pending a flight to Moscow scheduled for April 25, to take part in the dress rehearsal of the jubilee parade.
Meanwhile, the Mongolian authorities have endorsed a schedule of gala events due on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of victory in WWII. One of the main gala events is a ceremony of paying tribute to WWII veterans; there will be also events dedicated to patriotic education of the young generation and commemoration of WWII heroes. A new medal dedicated to the 70th jubilee of victory will be issued in Mongolia to add another medal to a set of state awards; a collection of jubilee stamps will be issued to join private philatelic collections.
In May 2015 Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj will head a delegation of the Mongolian government which will arrive in Moscow to take part in the jubilee celebrations.
During WWII Mongolia contributed 500,000 horses, a tank regiment and an Air Force squadron to the Red Army which were formed on a voluntary basis on donations contributed by the Mongolian people. Mongolia sent nine trains with ammunition, foodstuffs and presents for the Soviet servicemen. Mongolia also delivered around half a million tons of meat and 64,000 tons of wool to the Soviet Union.
