Victory Day In Sochi

Today, May 9, Sochi observed Victory Day, the day of the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.  A moment of silence was observed at the central memorial.  Sochisiders spent the day in the parks, at a concert on Administration and on the streets.  The cafes and restaurants have been filled all day with families and parties as people celebrated the beautiful weather and the victory won at incredible costs.  

I met Sochi Mayor Anatoli Nikolayevich Pakhomov near Riviera Park at a celebration honoring some of the city's surviving veterans of what is known as the Great Patriotic War.
