The participants solemnly offered incense and traditional offerings to Hung Kings.

Standing Vice Chairman of the Vietnamese People Association in Russia Tran Phu Thuan affirmed that Hung King’s Commemoration Day, which falls on the tenth day of the third lunar month or April 18 this year, is a celebration of great importance among Vietnamese citizens, particularly those living abroad as they can together express gratitude to the ancestors and consolidate the national solidarity.

as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012./.
