    Russia’s traditional Victory Day celebrations ended with a fireworks show in Moscow on Sunday night.

    Russians braved the rain and gathered on the streets to commemorate the 76th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two.

    The defeat of Nazi Germany in Europe is celebrated elsewhere a day earlier, on May 8, due to the time difference between Moscow and other European capitals when the surrender of the German forces took effect.

    The Soviet Union, officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was a federal socialist state in Northern Eurasia that existed from 1922 to 1991. Nominally a union of multiple national Soviet republics, it was a one-party state (until 1990) governed by the Communist Party, with Moscow as its capital in its largest republic, the Russian SFSR.

    The Soviet Union had its roots in the October Revolution of 1917 when the Bolsheviks, headed by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Provisional Government that had earlier replaced the monarchy of the Russian Empire.

    On 25 December 1991, Gorbachev resigned and the remaining twelve constituent republics emerged from the dissolution of the Soviet Union as independent post-Soviet states. The Russian Federation (formerly the Russian SFSR) assumed the Soviet Union’s rights and obligations and is recognized as its continued legal personality.
