Russian Federation marks WWII Victory Day in coronavirus-reduced ceremony

Russian Federation marks WWII Victory Day in coronavirus-reduced ceremony”

Putin on Saturday laid flowers at the tomb of the unknown soldier just outside the Kremlin walls and gave a short address honouring the valour and suffering of the Soviet army during the war.

The muted celebrations came as Russian Federation said it had registered an additional 10,817 coronavirus cases over the past 24 hours, bringing the country's total to 198,676.

With the number of virus cases surging and authorities urging Russians to stay in their homes, celebrations of this year's Victory Day were muted after the Kremlin grudgingly agreed to postpone plans for a grand parade with world leaders. "And we will always be equal to their unity and endurance", Putin said.

The worldwide community should carry forward the spirit of the World Anti-Fascist War, stand together and help each other, and actively put into practice the notion of a community with a shared future for mankind, so as to jointly win the battle that concerns the lives and health of people in all countries, Xi added.

Fireworks will be let off across Russian Federation as much of the country remains in lockdown, the Defence Ministry has said.

Putin, 67, has in previous years basked in national pride, watching Russian tanks rumble across the square with world leaders by his side.

The Russian air force will carry out fly-pasts over more than 47 cities, as well as at its military base in Syria, with a full array of jets and helicopters, including Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighters, the country's most advanced warplanes. A vote on constitutional changes that was scheduled for last month and would allow Putin to seek two more presidential terms, keeping him in power until 2036, was postponed.

Officials are hoping both events can still be held later this year, though no dates have been set and much will depend on when the outbreak comes under control.

Moscow and other regions have observed lockdowns since late March to try to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has infected 198,676 Russians so far.

On the eve of the anniversary, Putin sent congratulatory letters to many former Soviet republics, as well as to the leaders of Britain, the United States and France, suggesting the need to rekindle their nations' co-operation during the Second World War to solve today's problems.

The two leaders stressed that for Russian Federation and Germany this date carries particular importance, and vowed to preserve the historical memory of the tragic events of those years to avoid any recurrence, the Kremlin said in a statement posted on its website.
