On 8 May each year, the world pays tribute to the victims of World War Two . The following day, 9 May, Russia celebrates its Victory Day with pompous parades of tanks and displays of arms. This year, on the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two, many Western leaders turned down invitations to come to Moscow, sending instead their lower-ranking representatives, mostly their ambassadors, to Russia.
