The Great Patriotic War: Russian marks 70 years victory over the Nazis in WW2

 In his opening speech, President Putin paid tribute to the sacrifices of Soviet troops during World War Two. He also thanked "the people of Great Britain, France and the United States for their contribution to victory". Thousands of troops marched across
Red Square in Moscow, and new armour was displayed for the first time. Chinese soldiers also march in Moscow for the first time. Many foreign dignitaries were present, but most western leaders stayed away because of Russia's role in Ukraine
