Manuel Marrero honored the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War

Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero and his accompanying delegation commemorated the heroes of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) on Tuesday as part of the events scheduled for the second day of his official visit to Russia.

The head of the Cuban government laid flowers on behalf of the people of the Caribbean island at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a place of obligatory tribute to Russian history, PL reports.

The monument, located on the walls of the Kremlin, is a place dedicated to the memory of almost 27 million children from the former Soviet republics who died in the war that began with the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 and ended with the capture of Berlin by the Red Army on May 2, 1945.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was opened in 1966 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Soviet victory in the Battle of Moscow.

During the day, Marrero will also hold meetings with government agencies to continue work on the bilateral agenda, and later will talk with General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Russian Federation Gennady Andreevich Zyuganov.

The head of government and persons accompanying him arrived in the Russian capital from the city of Sochi, where they have been participating in various events of the Eurasian Economic Union since June 6. Marrero spoke at the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council and at the III Eurasian Congress.

The tour of Russia will last until June 17, after the participation of the Prime Minister in the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg.
