Russian Historical Society, institute have big plans for 2015

The Russian Historical Society held its last meeting of the year recently at the Moscow State institute of International Relations.

During this meeting, members discussed the significant progress the society has made in the past year, including how it has been gaining public support.

This year marked the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, which began on July 28, 1914. Many historical conferences on a national and international scale were held nationwide, featuring historicans from the institute.

The report said 2015 will mark several other significant anniversaries, including the 70th anniversary of the end of the Great Patriotic War, a moniker given by Russia and other former Soviet nations to the period of time from 1941 until 1945, when Germany surrendered to end the war in Europe. It also marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. The institute will host several events to observe these anniversaries.
