A firework display over Moscow marked the 75th anniversary of Victory Day, which commemorates Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender on May 8, 1945 marking the end of the Second World War in Europe.
The novel coronavirus forced Russia to scale back celebrations of the event, with President Vladimir Putin last month postponing a massive parade in Red Square intended to showcase Russia’s military might.
Earlier in the day, Putin laid a bouquet of red roses at the Eternal Flame war memorial outside the Kremlin.
Moscow and other regions have observed lockdown since late March as countries around the world try to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
