World War I Finished 90 Years Ago

Today marks the 90th anniversary since the end of World War One that had lasted for four years and three months and taken lives of almost 10 million people.
      On 11 November 1918 in the French town of Redonthes, the Armistice was signed bringing the war between the Ententa countries and Germany to an end. The signal to stop fire was transmitted throughout entire front line at 11 am sharp.
      On the same hour a monument to heroes of the First World War was unveiled this morning in Tsarskoe Selo under St. Petersburg. The stele has been set up by the bed of honour of guardsmen of the Russian Empire. More than one and a half thousand holders of St. George Order, officers and generals of guards regiments are buried there.
