On May, 9 Khabarovsk citizens together with the whole Russia celebrated Victory Day, a holiday commemorating the end of the Second World War and the victory over Nazi Germany.

The celebrations began with a traditional military parade held in the morning on the city’s central Lenin Square. Officials from the territorial administration and federal authorities, commanders of the Eastern military district and war veterans took part in the parade.

After the parade the participants marched to Glory Square to lay wreaths to the Eternal Flame of the Memorial Complex featuring more than 47,000 names of residents of the Khabarovsk Territory who died during the Second World War.

City guests and citizens had a chance to visit an exhibition of military hardware and armaments, organized at the Amur embankment and try real soldier’s porridge.
