Historical readings about the events in Vladivostok during the Russian-Japanese war

On March 31, historical readings dedicated to the events of the Russian-Japanese war in Vladivostok were held at ANMSU. 2nd and 3rd year cadets of the Navigation Faculty, as well as: Vitaly Kozko, a member of the Russian Geographical Society, Nikolai Minakov, Chairman of the Primorsky Regional Branch of the All-Russian Fleet Support Movement, and Alexander Putyatin, a member of the Vladivostok Maritime Assembly, took part in the readings organized by the Museum of the Maritime University. Cadet of Company 18 Nikita Vitvitsky and V.A. Kozko made reports. As you know, with the beginning of the Russo-Japanese War, Vladivostok was under martial law, and after the attack on the city of the Japanese squadron on March 6, 1904, by order of the commandant of the fortress, a state of siege was introduced in the city. The speakers talked about how prepared the city was for the enemy attack, what damage was inflicted on it, what consequences the shelling of Vladivostok by the squadron of Admiral Kamimura had. Nikita Vitvitsky speaks for the second time at historical readings with a report. Vitaly Kozko - a connoisseur of the Vladivostok fortress, visually, dressed in the reconstructed uniform of a Russian officer during the Russo-Japanese war, showed the entire course of hostilities in the vicinity of Vladivostok on the map, as well as photographs of the fortifications that have survived to this day. The participants of the readings A.G. Putyatin and N.M. Minakov supplemented the picture of historical events with a story about the actions of the legendary detachment of Vladivostok cruisers. A new tradition was laid in the educational activities of the University - historical readings, which will be devoted to individual pages of the history of the city, the region, and the history of the fleet.
