Battle Glory of the Urals exposition to be based at Yekaterinburg House of Officers

The organizers of the Battle Glory of the Urals have decided to base the exposition at the Officers House of the Central Military District in Yekaterinburg.

Sverdlovsk Governor Eugene Kuyvashev and Central Military District Cmdr. Vladimir Zarudnitskim recently met to officially sign a cooperation agreement concerning the details.

The agreement will fulfill many of the wishes of the veterans organizations based in the Sverdlovsk region. The veterans previously made appeals to the governor, requesting that the museum be located in the center of Yekaterinburg.

Kuyvashev held a meeting Monday to finalize the plans for the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Great Patriotic War. He encouraged the committee responsible for ensuring that anniversary celebrations run smoothly stay focused.

Kuyvashev also requested that Yekaterinburg give the committee the support it needs to operate smoothly, including support from the local veterans.

The exposition will take place on Victory Day, May 9.
