Why The World Is Watching Russia On Victory Day

May 9th is celebrated as Victory Day in Russia to commemorate the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II. It’s being watched closely this year as it takes place amid the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, with many observers expecting President Vladmir Putin to signal his next strategy in the war. We speak to security expert Alexey Muraviev of Curtin University to better understand the significance of Victory Day for Russia as well as updates on the Ukraine frontline. Image credit: EPA-EFE
