French-Russian friendship monument
Dec 2019
This is a nice memorial to Russian Expeditionary Corps in France during WWI.
The monument is situated in Cours la Reine on the right bank of the river Seine, aside the Grand Palais opposite the Invalides bridge.
Don't forget to visit the Simon Bolivar monument which stands at the other side of this nice walkway.

Memorial to the 5,000 Russians who lost their lives on WW1 French Battlefields
Oct 2019
The excellent sculpture honours the memory of the Russian Expeditionary Force who, from 1916 to 1918, fought in France during the first World War.

The monument bears the following inscription in French and Russian:
“In 1916, at the request of the Allies, Russia sent to France two special brigades of the Russian Expeditionary Force. More than 20,000 men took part in the military operations in Champagne. More than 5,000 of them, Russian soldiers and officers, lost their lives on the French battlefields. "
