Russia celebrates her Victory day
The victory day is a holiday that commemorates the victory over Nazi Germany from 1939-1945 (2nd world war).It was first inaugurated in the republics of the Soviet Union, following the signing of the German Instrument of Surrender late in the evening on 8 May 1945.
This year’s Victory Day comes amidst tension in both Russia and the West, that Putin is eager to declare at least a win in Ukraine.
The celebrations includes military parades in Moscow and more than 24 Russian cities. It also over 65,000 people, 2,400 types of weapons and military equipment and more than 460 planes that are exposed.
The Kremlin insists that what it calls its “special military operation” in Ukraine is going “according to plan.” Two months in, Western security officials say Moscow has struggled to reach its objectives.
Russia’s recent focus on those Ukrainian regions in the eastern Donbas area has slowed down as the U.S. and European allies boost the flow of weapons and other support for Ukraine.
