    Russian cosmonauts stationed aboard the International Space Station have sent their congratulations to the people down below on earth on Victory Day.

    Members of the ISS expedition 47 – Oleg Skripochka, Alexei Ovchinin and Yuri Malenchenko have recorded a video address from the space station which was later posted on the Russian space agency Roscosmos’ official Facebook page.

    "Honorable veterans, people of Russia and all of the other countries that defeated fascism in May 1945, from aboard the ISS we congratulate you on Victory Day," the cosmonauts said.

    They also added that "working in space and living a peaceful life; scientific research, dreams and achievements – all of it is only possible in a world without war."
