A wreath-laying ceremony took place at the Soviet War Memorial in the park near the Imperial War Museum in London. The ceremony is traditionally held all over the UK on Remembrance Day, when the royal family members and the UK’s senior government and military officials commemorate those killed in the First and Second World Wars, as well as in modern military operations. Those gathered honored the memory of the heroes with two minutes of silence.

The ceremony was attended by the mayor of the borough of Southwark Sandra Rhule, members of the British Parliament, diplomatic delegations, representatives of Russian and British state and public organizations, local authorities, and British veterans.

The ceremony was organized by the Soviet War Memorial Fund with participation of the Society for Co-operation in Soviet and Russian Studies, Russian Embassy and the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo.
