Victory Day Celebrations


In Russia and other post-Soviet states, the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45 is marked on May 9, a day later than the rest of the world, since it was early morning in Moscow when Germany's official surrender was signed outside Berlin. While Victory Day is marked with grand military spectacle in Moscow, other former Soviet states also have their solemn remembrances.
