Russian delegation lays wreath to graves of seamen of Imperial Russian Navy in the USA
In the United States of America, on the Day of Military Glory of Russia - Victory at Cape Gangut - the Russian Defence Ministry delegation joined by Russian representatives of the U.S.–Russia Joint Commission on POW/MIAs laid wreaths to graves of seamen of the Imperial Russian Navy in the USA.
Sailors Nikolay Pavlov and Timothy Cheparinov, members of the crews of the cruiser Varyag and the battleship Retvizan, were buried in the cemetery Glenwood Memorial Gardens, near Philadelphia, where these ships were built by the order of the Russian government. The graves are dated 1900 and 1901.
In late May 2018, memorial stones were installed at the graves. These are the first memorials erected by the Russian Federation for its servicemen on the Atlantic coast line of the USA.
