Why Does Russia Celebrate Victory Day On 9 May?

Today is May 9th, which commemorates the Soviet Union’s victory day against Hiller. Hiller is not in Germany, and the Soviet Union is no longer visible on the map, so Victory Day is for Russia. I wrote this post since you presumably wanted to know why the Russians celebrate May 9th.

What Happened Between Russia And Germany In World War 2?

When World War II started in 1929 with German aggression against Poland, because of that, England and France declared war on Germany.

Hitler was not surprised by this and proceeded to knock on the doors of Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. After that, by 1941, Germany had practically all of Europe on their side.

On the 22nd of June, Hitler declared war on the Soviet Union because he wanted more land. Now the German Reich has two primary opponents in Europe. The first one is Soviet Russia, and the second one is the United Kingdom.

There isn’t a third one because France has done well. The Germans are now getting into Russia and their primary objective is to capture the cities of Leningrad, to date, on Petersburg, Stalingrad, and the capital of Moscow, which is still Moscow.

As a result, the Germans and their allies in Romania, Italy, Hungary were attacking the Soviets’ big cities, which are beginning to fall, like Odessa. The European parts of the USSR had the most people, and millions of civilians were subjected to Russian atrocities around the world.

Between 1941 and 1945, when the Soviets won the war, more than 8 million soldiers and more than 18 million civilians died, totaling 26 million deaths on the Soviet front. As you know, the Russians won the fight against Nazi Germany on the 9th of May 1945, a war they named the Great Patriotic War.

They still won despite losing a population larger than Hungary, Algeria, and Serbia combined. As a result, every year on this date in May, you may see one of the largest military projects in Moscow, equipped with tanks, soldiers, and nuclear weapons.
