Netanyahu guest of honor at Russian Victory March

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was President Vladimir Putin’s guest of honor at the Victory March taking place in Moscow Wednesday on the anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. They walked together past the guard of honor, watched the march-past of different Russian army units, and together laid their wreaths at the monuments to the unknown soldier, as the military band played Israel’s national anthem, Hatikva, after the Russian anthem. Putin said the ceremony also commemorated the victims of the Nazi Holocaust. The two leaders will sit together to watch the main part of the event that showcases the military prowess of the Russian army and its heavy weaponry.
