Chinese Leader to Come for VE Day Parade in Moscow
China’s President Hu Jintao will visit the festivities in Russia on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of VE Day on May 9th, the Voice of Russia reports. The Russian Ambassador in Beijing Sergei Razov said as he handed over commemorative medals to Chinese war veterans on Wednesday, that the visit testifies to a strategic partnership between Russia and China. They both consider Victory in Europe as their common victory and form a united front to prevent any attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War. Moscow and Beijing, he said, are working together to perpetuate the memory of the war dead and look after the war memorials and wartime mass graves.
