The Russians, who are here as guests of the Soviet-Israel Friendship Movement, participated in the victory rally yesterday at the Red Army Forest near Jerusalem. The delegation comprises Dimitri Mamalayev, deputy editor of “Sovietskaya Cultura”; Jewish World War II hero Heinrich Hofman, who was a pilot in the Soviet airforce; and Yuri Michayev, of the Novosti News Agency.
