MOSCOW, May 9. /TASS/. A minute’s silence has been observed throughout Russia in honor of those who died in the Second World War.
Russian television channels and radio stations suspended broadcasting for five minutes to mark the 71st anniversary of the Soviet victory in WW2 and honor the memory of victims. The clock on the Kremlin’s Spasskaya Tower rang its chimes to begin a minute’s silence.
A minute’s silence has been held in Russia since 1965 and remains one of the annual mourning ceremonies marking Victory Day.
The Soviet Union suffered the largest losses during WW2. According to official data, 26.6 million Soviet citizens, including both civilians and servicemen, died in the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany in 1941-1945.
