U.S. veterans regret that U.S. and Russia have stopped participating in Victory Day celebrations

Washington (Sputnik)-The Victory Day parade in Moscow is a reminder of when the United States and Russia celebrated an important holiday together, and very sadly, it’s no longer a reality. Frank Korn, a veteran of World War II, told Sputnik.

A military parade commemorating the 77th anniversary of the end of the Great Patriotic War in 1941-1945 took place on the Red Square in Moscow during the celebration of Victory Day.

“This morning I watched a fragment of the Victory Day parade in Moscow on TV, remembering the day of 2010 when I saw the entire parade in person,” Korn said.

Korn regretted that the United States and Russia were not celebrating this year’s victory day together and urged the public to maintain personal contact despite current political tensions.

“It’s sad that we no longer participate in the celebration. Keep them alive until we’re worried about our personal contacts and realize that politicians do nothing by engaging in conflict. Let’s go, “he said.
