Victory Day is a celebration of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War. It was established by a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on May 8, 1945. It is celebrated every year on May 9.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Victory Day remains an official non-working day in Russia and a number of former Soviet republics such as Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
In 2000, the Knesset passed a law for World War II veterans, and Victory Day has been an official holiday in Israel ever since.
In these days of division, however, this topic and this date are almost dangerous, especially if you are a supporter of them. It becomes dangerous to even share what is left and to be a supporter of this holiday.
Beyond all political affiliations, however, history cannot be changed. And the fact that the Red Army puts an end to the bloodiest human conflict, too.
