Around 5,000 people flooded the streets of Belgrade on Wednesday, uniting in an Immortal Regiment march marking the 73rd anniversary of Victory Day.
Gordon Cetkovic, whose parents fought in the WWII together with the Red Army for the liberation of Belgrade, said that she came to march 'for all the patriots, for my children, my grandchildren and all the next generation.'
Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin also participated in the event saying: "This day we celebrate with tears in our eyes. It is a bright celebration which cost Serbia and Russia enormous death tolls."
Serbian politician and minister Nenad Popovic, Serbian Minister for Labour and Social policy Zoran Djordjevic and Belgrade City Manager Goran Vesic were also among the attendees.
The Immortal Regiment march is an annual event held throughout Russia and in other countries between May 7 to 9 and is part of worldwide commemorative events to mark the anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War.
