HA NOI (VNS) —  More than 200 documents, photographs and objects related to late President Ho Chi Minh's activities in Russia are on display at a new exhibition in Ha Noi.

The exhibition focuses on Ho Chi Minh and his journey to Russia to find a way to liberate Viet Nam; the friendship between Viet Nam and the Soviet Union during the time Ho Chi Minh was President (1945-1969); and the Russian people's sentiments towards the Vietnamese leader.

"Some of the objects and photos on display here are very precious and have been preserved for more than 90 years at the Federal Archival Agency of Russia. This is the first time they are being displayed in Viet Nam," said Vu Thi Minh Huong, head of the Vietnam Records and Archives Association.

The exhibition has attracted a number of visitors.

"We hope that the exhibition helps the public to know more about the challenging and revolutionary life of Ho Chi Minh and his efforts to find a way to liberate Viet Nam," she added.

The event aims to highlight the late President's diplomatic strategies, consolidate the traditional relations between Viet Nam and Russia, and enhance the public's understanding of the role of archives in building and protecting the nation.

The exhibits also reflect the friendly relations between the Vietnamese and Russian parties and people, and the Russian people's support for Ho Chi Minh.

"Ho Chi Minh is a great example for national liberation movements in the world. He devoted his whole life to the liberation of Viet Nam and made tireless efforts for world peace and human progress," said Andrey G Kovtun, Russia's Ambassador to Viet Nam.

The exhibition, entitled "President Ho Chi Minh and Russia – Archives and Records", is being jointly organised by the Vietnam Records and Archives Association and the Federal Archival Agency of Russia as part of the celebrations for the 97th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (1917-2014) and the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Viet Nam and Russia (1950-2015).

The exhibition will run at the Ho Chi Minh Museum, 19 Ngoc Ha Street, Ba Dinh District, till December 5. — VNS
