    Over one hundred people took part in the "Immortal Regiment" commemorative march in Beijing on Tuesday, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — The event, organized with the help of the Russian Embassy in China, was held in the Chaoyang park. The participants marched across the park stopping at the sculpture symbolizing a Soviet pilot, then sent air balloons with the name of the event up in the sky before honoring the memory of the war victims with a minute of silence.

    Russian Ambassador to China Andrei Denisov took part in the ceremony and laid flowers at the memorial.

    The participants then attended a special concert and could visit a photo exhibition.

    According to local media, similar "Immortal Regiment" marches were held in the Chinese cities of Harbin, Guangzhou, Dalian and Wuhan.
