In the former Soviet Union, where World War II is known as the Great Patriotic War, the anniversary of Germany’s surrender to the Allied forces is an annual cause for nationwide celebration, a day of parades and reunions of onetime veterans.

The veterans from the FSU who have settled in this country over the last few decades still commemorate the day.
