Diplomats of Russian missions in Belgium paid tribute to the memory of the Second World War heroes.

On 9 May 2024, marking the 79th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, a ceremony was held at the communal cemetery in Evere, Brussels. Ambassador of Russia to Belgium Alexander Tokovinin, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of the Russian Mission to the EU Kirill Logvinov and heads of CIS states’ diplomatic missions laid wreaths at the memorials of Soviet citizens who had died in the struggle against Nazism and of members of the Belgian Resistance.

Commemorative events with the participation of Russian diplomats are also taking place in other Belgian towns where burial sites of Soviet servicemen are located.

We will continue to remember and honour the feat of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers who gave their lives to liberate Europe from Nazism.
