An exhibition of portraits of the Great Patriotic War veterans, provided by their relatives, became an integral part of the solemn event. 

Students of the Russian Embassy School and the children’s educational center “Rostok” as well as compatriots’ kids took part in a festive concert. The students shared stories about the heroic deeds of their relatives, performed colourful dances, recited poems and sang war songs. The Indian guests made a pleasant surprise for everybody performing the exciting Russian sailor’s dance “Yablochko” and singing the popular military song “Katyusha” in Russian.
