|Seventy years ago, on January 1, 1950, the Soviet Union became one of the first countries to establish diplomatic ties with the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, contributing to the country's international recognition. However, the two countries’ relations started long before, dating back to the first time the young patriot named Nguyen Ai Quoc, who later became world-renowned as Ho Chi Minh, set foot in the Soviet Union on his journey of researching Communist theory and the national liberation movement. The first bricks of friendship and cooperation between Russia and Vietnam were laid during that time. People of the Soviet Union and later of Russia wholeheartedly supported Vietnamese people, both financially and mentally, during the Resistance War against America and post-war period. In those arduous days, important infrastructure was built and thousands of experts were trained in the USSR, many of them later held critical positions in the government, according to Russian Ambassador to Việt Nam K. V. Vnukov.|
