Historical reconstruction of the Petropavlovsk 1854 defense will be held in Kamchatka

Soldiers of the Kamchatka Group of Forces will take part in celebrating the 160 anniversary of the victory over the Anglo-French squadron during the defense of Petropavlovsk 1854, Interfax reported, citing the press service of the Eastern Military District.

A theatrical reconstruction of the defense of Petropavlovsk will be prepared for the anniversary. The celebrations will take place on Nikolskaya Sopka, where the events of the city's defense will be reconstructed. Naval sailors on boats will land on the shore, depicting the landing of invaders, defend themselves on artillery batteries and will converge in a bayonet battle with the "enemy" on the coastal strip.

The defense of the port of Peter and Paul from the attacks of the Anglo-French squadron in 1854 was one of the most striking pages in the history of the city during the Crimean War. The military, the sailors, the Cossacks, together with the inhabitants of the city, became the defenders of a distant land and brilliantly won the battle against the enemy forces several times superior. He headed the defense of the port military governor of Kamchatka Vasily Stepanovich Zavoyko.
