  • Description

    Continuing his 18-day visit to Russia, President Nasser of the United Arab Republic, spent Wednesday, 30th April, touring Moscow, sight-seeing.

    Our camera-man was able to take several shots of Col.Nasser leaving a Metro station in Moscow and climbing into a car that took him to the Kremlin.

    The Russian Government and people are lavishing a spectacular welcome on the President. Wherever he goes there's always a crowd of cheering students and people greeting him with "Hail leader of the Arab World". Members of the Pioneers,--a junior Communist movement---- is ever-present with posies and bouquets for President Nasser.

    Later in the day--- Wednesday, 30th.April---- he was the guest of honour at the Bolshoi Theatre where the scheduled opera, Verdi's "Aida", was replaced by a special performance of the ballet "Swan Lake". This last minute change was thought politic, as "Aida" was first performed in Cairo, in 1871, to celebrate the opening of the Suez Canal.

    For the most part President Nasser's tour will take him to military installations, and cultural and educational institutions throughout the country.
