Many visitors to Soviet War Cemetery on 4 and 9 May

On 4 May over a thousand people walked across the Soviet War Cemetery during the annual Silent March that precedes the remembrance ceremony of the war dead in the Netherlands. Many hundreds also visited the Soviet War Cemetery on May 9th. In several former Soviet republics the victory over Nazi-Germany is being celebrated on that day. Also the war dead are remembered. A joint wreath laying ceremony was not possible this year.
