    The mural "Motherland" on the facade of a residential building, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of victory in World War II, in Novorossiysk, Russia.

    The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

    Artwork paying homage to World War II heroes has been painted on buildings all over Russia in commemoration of Victory Day.

    Russia celebrates Victory Day on 9 May — the anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany by Soviet forces in 1945. The festivities traditionally include a military parade on Moscow's Red Square. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the celebration and the parade have been postponed this year and are set to take place on 3 September.
