“We must pay tribute to the heroism and courage of the soldiers of the Russian-Japanese war of 1904-1905. And with these measures to honor the memory of the crews of the cruiser "Varyag" and the gunboat "Koreets", 110 years ago, took an unequal battle with the Japanese squadron at the Korean port of Chemulpo. We must remember this cruel lesson and carry out the planned events at a high level, ”said Tatiana Zabolotnaya.
