Must read

SUBSCRIBER+ EXCLUSIVE REPORTING — It’s an unusually busy week in Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been inaugurated for a fifth term, the military is rehearsing its parades for May 9 – the annual celebration of “Victory Day,” honoring the heroes of World War II – and visitors are flocking to an exhibition in Victory Park, a sprawling complex that was built to honor the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany. 

The exhibition carries a blunt message from the Kremlin to the West: We’re fighting you, too.
