Moscow celebrates Victory Day 2013

On May 9th, 2013, Moscow celebrated the 68th anniversary of Victory Day, commemorating the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union at the end of the Second World War in 1945. A traditional military parade was held in Red Square, including servicemen and women, tanks, and self-propelled howitzers. President Vladimir Putin addressed the large crowd and live TV audience:

"We will always remember that it was specifically Russia, the Soviet Union, that undermined the abhorrent, bloody, supercilious plans of the Nazis and kept them from controlling the world. Our soldiers saved freedom and independence by defending their motherland without sparing themselves, liberating Europe and claiming a victory whose grandeur will live on for centuries."

After the speech, Putin downed the customary 100 grams of vodka, the daily ration issued to Red Army soldiers during the war. The Russian Government currently estimates that 26.6 million Russians lost their lives in "The Great Patriotic War," counting both civilians and military.
