Medvedev visits monument commemorating Great Patriotic War

As part of his trip to the city of Volgograd, President Dmitry Medvedev has visited a monument to pay homage to the victims of the Great Patriotic War [WWII].

The monument commemorating the Battle of Stalingrad, as the city was formerly known, was the first stop during Medvedev’s visit to the heroic city.

After laying a wreath under the famous eighty-five meter monument dedicated to the Motherland, Medvedev decorated veterans with state honors.

This year, which marks the 65th anniversary of victory of the Great Patriotic War, the military parade will take place not only on Red Square in Moscow, but also in other Russian cities.

The country-wide celebration will take place on May 9.
