Elbe Day commemorates the linking of the Soviet and US Armies at the River Elbe in Germany on April 25, 1945, which was an important step toward ending the Second World War.

"I would like to underline that the fact that so many Russian and US citizens who remember the feat of our peoples have gathered here is extremely important not only for the present generation but even more for the future ones," Kislyak said. "It is especially important when there are the attempts to rewrite the history and to forget much of the heroic things done by the Soviet people."

Russian, US well as the delegations of the former Soviet Union states laid wreaths at the "Spirit of the Elbe" memorial at Arlington National Cemetery.
