MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Kiev residents will gather on Victory Day for the "Immortal Regiment" march to honor World War II veterans but the event will be given a different name, the organizers of the Russian march said on Wednesday.
"The march will be held in Kiev. It will not be called ‘Immortal Regiment’ but they will carry portraits of their soldiers," said Nikolai Zemtsov, co-chairman of Russia’s Immortal Regiment movement.
"The movement lives there [in Ukraine]," Zemtsov said. "It’s not so vibrant as in Russia but it’s in the heart of Ukrainians."
The "Immortal Regiment" march was held for the first time in 2012 in Siberia’s Tomsk. In 2013 some Russian, Kazakh and Ukrainian cities joined the campaign.
On May 9, 2015 when the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany was celebrated the "Immortal Regiment" marched through the streets of 500 cities across the world with some 12 million people carrying photographs of their ancestors who fought in World War II.
Russian President Vladimir Putin joined the march in Moscow with a portrait of his father.
