OTTAWA, April 26. /TASS/. More than 100 cars took part in a motor rally in Canada on Saturday to mark the 70th anniversary of the meeting of Soviet and American troops, member of the Victory Day 70 Canadian organizing committee Gennady Vilensky told TASS.
"We counted more than a hundred vehicles with about 230 people inside," he said. The rally began in Toronto, which is home to the largest number of World War Two veterans who found themselves in Canada by a twist of fate. The convoy then headed for Canadian Forces Base Borden (about 65 kilometers from Toronto), where the participants visited the local military museums and laid flowers at the memorial to the fallen in the Second World War.
"Unfortunately, for health reasons only four veterans were able to join the rally," Vilensky said. He added that the participants had received a warm welcome at the military base. "Soldiers and officers showed us the museums of military equipment, organized a lunch and, together with us, paid homage to the memories of those who perished in the Second World War with a minute of silence," the organizing committee member said.
The historic meeting of the First Ukrainian Front and the First United States Army on the Elbe River took place on April 25, 1945. By joining forces, the Soviet and American troops dealt a powerful blow to Nazi Germany by cutting their army in two parts.
