Russia: Victory Day in Moscow

The Turkish Invasion writes about Victory Day in Moscow: “The metro was crammed with Veterans and their relatives and some younger men were carrying Red Army division banners. At first, I thought that it was another absurdity to carry war banners in Metro but I was then ashamed to realise that those banners would then be used in the park to make up meeting points of the veterans according to their units.”
