On the occasion of the 79th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, on May 1, an action “Immortal Regiment” was held on the streets of the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for the fourth time.

Dozens of people marched through Kinshasa with photos of relatives and banners, among them compatriots, Embassy staff, Russian military observers and the UN police Stabilization Mission in the DRC, local graduates of Soviet and Russian universities, as well as Congolese sympathizers with Russia. The column, in front of which the 6-meter flag of the Russian Federation was unfurled, was headed by Ambassador A.L.Sentebov.

After the procession at the memorial slabs installed on the territory of the Embassy in honor of the Russian peacekeepers killed in 2003 and 2022 in the line of duty, Major V.Y. Budarin and Lieutenant Colonel A.A.Mizyura, the participants observed a minute of silence in memory of the fallen soldiers.
