In particular, a bilateral economic forum will be held in Yekaterinburg, a cultural forum will take place in St. Petersburg. Many joint events will be dedicated to the Victory Day. According to Russian diplomats, the large-scale project is of great importance, as it helps to strengthen cooperation in all areas, both in the technical and economic ones, as well as in science, education and culture.

The opening ceremony of the cross year is scheduled for February 27. It will take place in the Kremlin.
