KUWAIT CITY, May 13: The Embassy of Russia in Kuwait celebrated the 73rd Victory Day to commemorat­e the victory of former Soviet Union in World War II over the fascists, and the surrender of Nazi Germany in 1945, which marked the end of the war.

In a statement he issued during the ceremony, the Russian Ambassador to Kuwait Alexey V. Solomatin affirmed that his country commemorat­es the Victory Day on May 9 every year.

He explained that the celebratio­ns are distinguis­hed especially with the military parade that is organized at the Red Square to display the military might of Russia.

As part of the celebratio­n, a major march is organized with the inclusion of veterans to commemorat­e the Soviet Union heroes who lost their lives for the victory of the country in World War II.

In response to press questions, Ambassador Solomatin expressed worry about the United States of America’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, stressing that such moves will not help stabilize the region or find solutions to the challenges facing the region such as spread of weapon of mass destructio­n.

He said this is a clear indication that some countries do not fulfill their obligation­s.

In response to another press question, Ambassador Solomatin affirmed that Russia, since the beginning of the Gulf crisis, has and continued to maintain the same stance towards every Gulf country, and has been pursuing to enhance relations with them.
