In Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the only ceremonial march of the Eastern Military District (VVO) troops took place in the Far East, dedicated to the 76th anniversary of the end of World War II, the liberation of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands from the militarist invaders.

On the day of the liberation of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, on the Glory Square in the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, ceremonial calculations took place from the officers of the army corps of the Air Defense Forces, as well as servicemen and representatives of other power structures and units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Sakhalin Region. More than 400 people took part in the solemn procession.

After the ceremonial events, as part of the cultural program, a demonstration performance by military personnel of the reconnaissance company took place on the territory of the Pobeda memorial complex, and the brass band of the Yuzhno-Sakhalin garrison under the direction of military conductor Major Oleg Shigalov performed a repertoire of wartime works.

In addition, an exhibition of modern weapons and military equipment, as well as rare cars, including those from the Second World War, was presented to guests and residents of the city on the territory of the Historical Park “Russia – My History”.

In parallel with this, there was an exposition of the show of military clothing “Soldiers of Victory” where guests learned about how soldiers dressed in the distant war years, and what role a backpack and footcloths played in their lives.

For the youth soldiers and the smallest spectators of the solemn events, the staff of the Pobeda Iron and Steel Works prepared an extensive excursion program. The guys, together with the advance detachment of the landing, will “go” to the island of Shumshu to learn about the exploits of the Soviet soldiers. They will “get over the swamp”, solve secret tasks, get acquainted with the uniforms of Soviet and Japanese soldiers during the Second World War, and at the master classes children will be able to paint wooden figurines and create letters from the front.

On the Kuril Islands, servicemen of the army corps of the Air Defense Forces took part in the reconstruction of the historical events of 1945 – “Kuril landing operation”.
