Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you have a chance to see pictures of war veterans at the parade in Moscow, take a close look at the medals they're wearing. All of them are medals awarded when the veterans were in the Red Army, which was renamed "Soviet Army" after the Second World War. The Soviet Union with hammer and sickle cannot be divorced from the history of the war. Here are some Soviet medals and what's on them.
