At exactly 12.00 on the observation deck near the Alexander Nevsky chapel for the first time a noon shot from a D-30 signal cannon struck.
– Chita became one of the first five cities in the country where such a tradition was introduced, – said the Governor of the Trans-Baikal Territory Alexander Osipov.
The shot will sound at noon five times a year: Defender of the Fatherland Day, Victory Day, Russia Day, Military Glory Day, and National Unity Day.
On the holiday in the regional capital, concerts are planned on Lenin Square, Decembrists Square, Theater Square, in places near the Udokan cinema and the Mir cultural center. The concert program “Together for Victory” is also organized in the Gagarinsky Park.
