Russian President Vladimir Putin met with WWII veterans Monday on the eve of Victory Day
Russian President Vladimir Putin met with WWII veterans Monday on the eve of Victory Day, the anniversary of Nazi forces' surrender to the Soviet Union in Berlin in 1945, marking the end of the Great Patriotic War which claimed the lives of over 20 million Soviet citizens. Putin told a Kremlin reception with veterans of WWII and later conflicts that he proposed introducing a new honorary title, "City of Military Glory," for cities that played a key role in the war but were not given the status of "Hero City" by the Soviet authorities to honor their residents. Putin also attended a wreath-laying ceremony at Moscow's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and sent congratulatory message to the leaders of the Commonwealth of Independent States, an alliance of former Soviet republics for the role of their citizens in the Great Patriotic War. Last year Russia invited world leaders to Moscow for events to commemorate of the 60th anniversary of Victory Day
