A new historical and documentary exhibition "The Revolution of 1917 in Russia and the Liberation Struggle of the Peoples of Vietnam. War and Peace on the Indochinese Peninsula in the First Half of the 1950s" has opened at the House of the Russian Historical Society, TASS reports.


"This year has shown ambiguous assessments of the Russian revolution: from  positive moments to rather harsh criticism of what happened 100 years ago. But there is one aspect that is especially important here,  And in  the story the influence of the world where the anti-colonial and  it had an effect on the whole world,  said Academician Alexander Chubaryan, co-chairman of the Russian Historical Society, scientific director of the Institute of World History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, at the opening ceremony of the exhibition.

Andrey Artizov, Head of the Federal Archival Agency, noted that the exhibition makes it possible to visualize the path traveled by the peoples of the Soviet Union and  Vietnam over the course of several decades. "The beginning of this path was laid by the Russian revolution of 1917, which became a symbol of hope for the young patriots of the then French Indochina," Artizov noted.

According to he, the presented exposition helps to "think deeper about the role of the October Revolution for the national upsurge of all dependent, oppressed and disabled peoples." The exhibition presents documents related to the life and activities of Lenin, and also shows the formation of the first President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, Ho Chi Min. The exposition traces the main moments of the national liberation movement of Indochina, which was carried out with the support of the Comintern and the Soviet Union, and also highlights the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. "In preparing the exhibition, Russian historians-archivists followed the main principle to enable the documents themselves to 'speak' about the facts of the past", said Artizov.

For the first time, the public is presented with authentic documents and  rarities from the funds of the former Russian state archive of socio-political history, which make it possible to show Russian-Vietnamese relations in all their diversity. The exposition also includes separate memorial items: a figurine of a Vietnamese woman and a sculptural composition "Vietnamese Woman and a Captured American". According to Artizov, they are made from the wreckage of American aircraft that "mercilessly bombed Vietnam."

The exhibition is open every Tuesday and Thursday until 22 November by pre-registration on the website of the Russian Historical Society. Free admission.
