Why Putin wants to win by May 9

May 9 is approaching – the day when Vladimir Putin (69) wants to celebrate victory. Sweden Russia expert Anders Asland (70) explains. However, it was Putin’s weakness that set the date.

Why May 9? World War II ended 77 years ago, when Russia always celebrated its victory over Nazi Germany. Every year a large parade is held in Red Square in Moscow. Putin describes this day, known in Russia as “Victory Day”, as his country’s most important holiday.
