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.”
