For example, the Embassy noted the joint statement of the occupant of the Oval office Donald trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin on the occasion of the meeting of American and Soviet soldiers in 1945 on the Elbe, in which heads of state stressed the role of all the peoples who fought against the Nazi invaders.
