LONDON (Sputnik) — The event is taking place on May 9.
"Anyone can participate in the rally, regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, faith, political or other views. Bring your children and your families, invite your colleagues and friends. We want to come together to honor the memory of our loved ones — the participants of World War II, those who worked in the rear, partisans, members of the resistance, concentration camp prisoners and those who lived through the Leningrad blockade," the statement read.
This year, commemorative marches are planned in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Switzerland, Estonia, Latvia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, and many other countries.
