The handover of the artifact was occasioned by the 100th anniversary of the day the President first set his foot in the Soviet Union (June 30, 1923 - 2023).
The issue is a special one that published farewell articles to Vladimir Ilich Lenin, with an article authored by young revolutionary Nguyen Ai Quoc with title "Lenin and the colonial nations" on page 2.
The article was published together with articles of other famous Soviet and comintern figures. As the sole author representing people from colonial nations in this special issue, Nguyen Ai Quoc was then internationally recognised as an outstanding future leader of the national liberation movement in the world.
The newspaper was found thanks to huge efforts of the Vietnamese community in Russia, showing their respect for the country's arduous and glorious history and the invaluable contributions of President Ho Chi Minh and other revolutionary figures, as well as the good sentiment and support of international friends, especially the Soviet Union in the past and Russia at present, for the cause of gaining national independence, reunificationand development of Vietnam.
