The Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Dora Dixon-Fyle, gave the civic welcome to the assembled guests.

Bermondsey & Old Southwark's new MP Neil Coyle participated in the ceremony for the first time and pledged to follow the tradition established by his predecessor Sir Simon Hughes of regular attendance at Soviet War Memorial events.

Alexander Kramarenko, the Russian chargé d'affaires in London, gave a more politically loaded speech on geopolitics than is usual at these events.
