An exhibition celebrating the friendship between Vietnam and Russia kicked off on Wednesday in Ho Chi Minh City in honor of the centennial anniversary of the October Revolution.

The event, organized on Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street and Dong Khoi Street in District 1, is part of a series of activities, lasting until November 10, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (November 7, 1917).

The 100 photos depict the revolutionary spirit, the friendship between the two countries, and the beauty of Russia, including its people and famous landmarks such as Lenin's Mausoleum, Red Square, Winter Palace, Lomonosov Moscow State University.

It also provides an overview of the development of the iconic October Revolution, and its impact on Vietnam’s revolutionary movement.

The event’s opening ceremony hosted the city’s leaders, officials who studied and worked in the USSR, now Russia, and guests from Russia’s diplomatic offices.

Delegates attending the event will also have the opportunity to visit sites built with the help of the USSR, including the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the Vietnam-Soviet Friendship Place of Culture, and the Tri An Hydropower Plant.

The October Revolution was sparked when Vladimir I. Lenin and the Bolshevik Party led the working class in the Soviet Union against the bourgeois government, forming the first socialist state in history.

The revolt then inspired revolutionary movements in other countries around the world, including Vietnam.
