    Russian and American diplomats and World War II veterans gathered on Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, US, to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of Elbe Day.

    On April 25, 1945, Soviet Red Army and American soldiers met at the Elbe River in Germany — this was their first encounter. Since then, Elbe Day has symbolized friendship between the two nations, regardless of the countries' political agenda.
