Happy Victory Day!

May 8th/9th (depending on what heritage you have) is the Victory day – the day when the Nazi Germany capitulated to the allied forces. The Germans had officially ceased hostilities as of May 8th 23:01 (May 9th 1:00 Moscow time) 1945, and the appropriate capitulation documents had been signed in the presence of the allied forces commanders.

Let us not forget what that war was about, and who won.
