    Smile 9 May - Victory Salute

    Today walked to watch a victory salute and take a few pictures using my Smartphone. Mobilography, bad quality photos - forgot to increase picture resolution, plus it was dark there. If you're from the Moon or was born in a tank - The May 9 Victory Day is celebrated in most of the successor states to the Soviet Union, especially in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. The day is traditionally marked by ceremonial military parades with the most prominent one being traditionally held in Moscow on the Red Square.

    ... or in France
    Here, the Second World War ended on May 8th (because of the different timezones). I had never realized that, thanks
