Russia honors Chinese veterans from WWII

Twenty-one of the people honored were unable to attend the ceremony due to age and ill health. The embassy will present them their medals either at their home or in the hospital.

Chen Zutao, a representative of the recipients, went to the Soviet Union in 1940 to study.
