Victory Day is May 9 in Russia – a national holiday commemorating the defeat of Nazi Germany on that date in 1945. It is marked annually by large scale military parades and a massive revival of Soviet symbolism such as red stars, victory medals, and the March of the Immortal Regiment commemorating veterans and fallen ancestors who participated in the Great Patriotic War.
