Victory Day - 9th May

День Победы

Celebrated by russia and the former soviet states. The celebrations start in the morning with a parade at Red square, followed by protests along Tveskaya ulitsa in the afternoon and end off with fireworks around the city at 9pm at various locations in Moscow.

The best place to catch the fireworks will be at Sparrow hills.Right next to Moscow State University.But getting there is a problem as the militsa closed off many paths leading to the area.So people were taking short cuts by climbing up a hill.Therese and I joined in the climb and was helped up by a few russian teenagers at the top.Boys that we didn't know , held out their hands to pull us all up. Russian men , they were all taught to be gentlemanly.
