More than 4.2 million people celebrated Victory Day on Moscow streets, no incidents were registered.

More than 4.2 million people celebrated Victory Day on Moscow streets, no incidents were registered, the Russian capital's police spokesman said.

Viktor Biryukov said more than 20,000 police officers and Interior Ministry troops ensured law and order on the streets during some 200 mass events.

Victory Day marks the final defeat of Nazi Germany by the Soviet Union in World War II. This year, the 65th anniversary of the Soviet victory was marked by bigger celebrations than ever before.

Victory celebrations in Moscow came to a grand close with a firework display lasting 15 minutes.

The display began at 22:00 Moscow time (18:00 GMT.) The fireworks were set off from 16 locations around the city, two more than last year.
