A monument dedicated to the Red Army’s victory over Nazi Germany is unveiled in the Israeli city of Netanya.

It's the first national memorial in Israel devoted to the Soviet role in World War II.

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.

Israel estimates that over 500,000 Jews fought in the Red Army during WWII.
