Victory Day (1945)

Still celebrated in most of the Soviet successor states, Victory Day marks Nazi Germany's capitulation to the USSR in WWII. Signed on the evening of May 8, 1945—May 9 in Moscow's time zone—the surrender followed Germany's initial capitulation to the Allies. When the first surrender document was being signed, only one Soviet representative was present, and he had no instructions from Moscow nor any means of immediate contact with Soviet leaders. Was he punished or lauded for deciding to sign it? More...

Tanks growled across Red Square and fighter jets streaked overhead on Saturday as Russia celebrated the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War with a display of military might.
Moscow’s rift with the US and Europe was strikingly apparent as anti-Western leaders lined up with President Vladimir Putin to watch 15,000 troops march below the walls of the Kremlin.
The Russian president’s guests underlined the split with the war-time allies including Britain, France and the United States, whose leaders boycotted the event in protest at Moscow’s intervention in the Ukraine crisis.

Instead, the stands in front of Lenin’s mausoleum were filled with a motley group including leaders from Central Asia and the Caucasus, Raul Castro of Cuba, Robert Mugabe, president of Zimbabwe, and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the leader of Egypt.

The parade was the biggest of its kind ever held. Phalanxes of soldiers paraded in their thousands across Red Square before 200 pieces of military hardware rumbled across the cobbles.

Does Chinese president Xi count as somebody? United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon, India’s President Pranab Mukherjee?
