Moscow – Friday 29th May, 2015

Now that I’ve finally managed to make it back to the office, I thought I’d share a few images from the events that took place here in Moscow on Saturday 9th May, to mark 70 years since the cessation of hostilities in Europe.

My sincere thanks goes to the 500,000 people who, like me, marched in honour of the fallen as part of the Immortal Regiment. We were joined by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who himself carried a placard of his Father.

Putting to one side the unfortunate politics that surrounded this remarkable event, it was important for those assembled to pay homage to their relatives who sacrificed so much. Of particular note was the number of young people taking part and I for one was proud to be a part of such an emotional outpouring.
