The convoy scheduled to set off on April 18 from Freedom Square in the city of Naples in Florida will include five cars with activists of Florida’s organisations of compatriots and the WWII veteran Alexei Farfel who fought Nazis aged 10 in a Soviet tank regiment .
The motor convoy decorated with holiday symbols will move along the Naples-Miami-Orlando-Saint Petersburg-Tallahassee-Atlanta-Washington route.
The rally participants will be handing out 7,000 St George ribbons, a symbol of military valour in Russia.
On April 24 the activists will lay wreaths to the Spirit of the Elbe plaque at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC.
President of the Russian-American Cultural heritage Centre Olga Zatsepina told a TASS correspondent that on April 20 Texas’s representatives will enter the rally and on April 24 representatives of Washington and New York are expected to join it.
