Okay, now that we, hopefully, learned the alphabet let's have a rest and watch how Russians celebrated Victory Day.
Victory Day festivities held in Moscow throughout Sunday were topped off by a spectacular fireworks display. A record 4,500 fireworks lit up the Moscow sky as crowds watched from a variety of sites in the capital. The tradition dates back to the World War II years of 1943-1945. At that time, fireworks marked all the victories reported in the media. That was a way to boost the morale of the nation and encourage the troops.
