Sister Cities in Archangel News

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

Recently, the official newspaper of the Archangel City Administration printed a lengthy article celebrating the 33rd Anniversary of the start of the official Sister City Relationship between Archangel and Greater Portland Maine. The official name of this widely read newspaper includes the phrase "Archangel - A City of Military Glory".

The city was honored as a "City of Military Glory" on January 12, 2010, in a ceremony at the Moscow Kremlin. The honor is given to the defenders of certain Russian cities who displayed extraordinary courage and heroism during the Great Patriotic War.

The recent article contains much information about the origins and history of the Sister City Relationship and includes photographs of the signing of the Treaty in 1988, a School 6 delegation to Greater Portland in 2011, and a Maine student basketball team visit to Archangel in 2018.
