Ambassador Andrei Kelin laid a wreath at the Arctic Convoys Memorial on the shore of Loch Ewe

On 26 May 2021, H.E. Ambassador Andrei Kelin laid a wreath at the Arctic Convoys Memorial on the shore of Loch Ewe in North-West Scotland.

During WWII, the geographically isolated bay of Loch Ewe became a strategically important base for the formation and preparation of the Arctic Convoys. The heroism of sailors, who had to overcome the freezing waters of the Arctic, move along the coast of the occupied Norway and evade the enemy blockade to deliver the vitally needed cargo to Murmansk and Archangelsk, shall never be forgotten.
