Congratulations and thank you to Russia and all the nations of the former Soviet Union for your incredible sacrifice and your leadership role in defeating Nazi Germany.
The suffering that you endured makes this day especially sacred.
We must never forget. We must always honor your sacrifices and the many who lost their lives. We must always remember.
And to all the veterans and civilians from many countries that fought to end this horrible reign of terror, thank you. To all those who died, may we always remember.
May all of us work together for peace and to insure that never again does this happen.
