Victory Day commemorates the victory of the Soviet Army over the Nazi Germany in the World War 2, in which more than 20 thousand soviet people were killed.
Russians say that there is no family that wasn’t touched by that war. Therefore it is a significant and very emotional holiday that is celebrated with parades in big and small cities.
The veterans wear their medals and the young generation honor them with flowers. People lay wreaths on the wartime graves, deliver speeches and veterans tell about their war adventures. And, of course, there is a huge Victory Day parade on the Red Square in Moscow that is broadcasted on TV.
The beautiful night salute - the biggest of the year – concludes this sacred holiday.
