It was designed by Russian artists following an initiative by the leaders of both countries.
The monument overlooking the Mediterranean Sea consists of bas-reliefs depicting events of the war, and the platform, which has two wings, symbolizing Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.
Top officials including Russian president Vladimir Putin and Israeli leader Shimon Peres attended the ceremony.
