Victory Day festivities

Okaynow that we, hopefully, learned the alphabet let's have a rest and watch how Russians celebrated Victory Day. 

Victory Day Pyrotechnics Show

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.

RT is bringing you full coverage of the Victory Day parade from the Red Square, the heart of Moscow. This year's parade is the largest commemoration since 1945, when Nazi Germany was defeated by the USSR and the Allies. Today, for the first time ever, France, Britain and the U.S. have sent their own soldiers to parade past the Kremlin wall. Narrator Peter Lavelle
