According to RIA Novosti, 400 people took part in the Immortal Regiment action in Khabarovsk. On the anniversary of the Victory, the city also hosted a marathon "70 years - 70 kilometers".

In the Amur region, the main celebrations in honor of the 70 anniversary of the Victory could be divided into 2 cities: Belogorsk and Blagoveshchensk. In each was something that was not in the other.

For example, it was possible to see the passage of military equipment only in 26 cities of the country, in which only Belogorsk fell from the entire Amur region - and then only because the headquarters of the 35th Red Banner Army is located here. This city has a special attitude to the Great Patriotic War, since in the 40s of the last century more than 13 thousand people went to the front from here - that is, every fifth city dweller.

According to the EastRussia correspondent, 1200 fighters and 27 vehicles from the ground and air forces of the Eastern Military District took part in the anniversary parade of Belogorsk. For the first time this year, pilots of the Ukrainka airbase came to Belogorsk Square - the command of the Sevastopol-Berlin Red Banner Guards Aviation Base is located there, which is armed with strategic nuclear missile-carrying bombers TU-95MS. In terms of the number of participants, the parade in Belogorsk turned out to be practically comparable to the Khabarovsk one, and almost twice the number of the festive military columns in Chita and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

And in the Amur capital - Blagoveshchensk - the main celebrations in honor of the 70th anniversary of Victory began early in the morning with the Immortal Regiment action, which united 13 Amur settlements and about 10 thousand people (in Blagoveshchensk alone, the number of participants approached 6 thousand ). The 70th anniversary of the Great Victory has become a good reason for many Blagoveshchens to join the march of the Immortal Regiment - by May 9, about 1,5 thousand applications for participation were submitted in Blagoveshchensk, the EastRussia correspondent reports.

By the way, on the eve, 8 in May in the regional capital of the Amur was solemnly opened a memorial in honor of the workers of the rear. This project, conceived in the last century by the participant of the Great Patriotic War, Maria Gaponenko, united thousands of citizens. Indeed, more than 50 thousand Amur residents for their valiant work during the years of the Great Patriotic War were awarded state awards. In total, during the years of the Great Patriotic War, almost 140 thousands of Amur residents left for the front, thousands of 35 of whom fell on the battlefields or went missing.

On May 9 in Blagoveshchensk, the organizers of the celebrations decided to present the guests with a rather unexpected surprise - to show the so-called 108th artillery half-caponier built in 1935. On the embankment of Blagoveshchensk, this fortified area, like many others, was intended for the long-term defense of a section of the state border. Today the strategic facility is under the jurisdiction of the Far Eastern military school.

The Victory Day in Blagoveshchensk, as elsewhere, ended with mass festivities with one very important difference: at 22 o'clock the only "double" fireworks for the whole of Russia thundered for the residents and guests of the Amur capital: from the direction of Blagoveshchensk and the Chinese city of Heihe, the sky over the Amur was painted 70 volleys each ...
