Members of the Russian embassy, World War II veterans and officials from other diplomatic missions in Washington DC gathered at the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia to commemorate the Elbe Day. The date in 1945 marked a first meeting of Soviet and American forces on the German soil, citting the Nazi troops into two.
