“It is impossible to describe everything that happened that day.” Moscow and Muscovites on May 9, 1945

Topic:65th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in WWII
…I was lucky to buy a liter of vodka at the train station when I arrived, because it was impossible to buy any later. We celebrated Victory Day with our families, landlords and neighbors. We drank to the victory and to those killed, wishing to never see such a massacre again. There was no vodka in Moscow on May 10, we drank it all.” Photo: May 9, 1945. Muscovites on Gorky (Tverskaya) Street.

16:39 07/05/2010 Sixty-five years ago, military correspondent Alexander Ustinov wrote: “In the early hours of May 9, 1945, most Muscovites were awake. At 2:00 am, a radio message said there would be an important announcement. At 2:10 am, radio announcer Yury Levitan read the German Instrument of Surrender and the Decree by the Presidium of the USSR Supreme Council declaring May 9 Victory Day. I took my camera and went out onto the street.”>>
