  • Description

    The Soviet Union today (Friday) commemorated the victory over Nazi Germany - one day later than the anniversary celebrated by the West, because the Russians only took Prague a day after the Nazi surrender in Berlin.

    Moscow and East Berlin held ceremonies to mark the anniversary - as did many of the other countries of the Eastern block - and in West Berlin military, diplomatic and youth movement delegations from Russia and the Eastern sector gathered at the Russian Monument near the Bradenburg Gate to lay wreaths in homage of fallen comrades of the past.

    The ceremonies were headed by Soviet Ambassador to East Berlin Abrasimov, Consul-General to West berlin Sharkov, and General Jvanowski, the highest commanding officer of the Soviet forces in East Berlin.
