It was President Putin’s first trip to Crimea since Russia consumed the peninsula from Ukraine in March. Putin reviewed navy ships and watched a military airshow while visiting a Russian naval base.

Victory Day is commemorated each year on May 9 as the day the Nazis surrendered in World War II.

Putin enjoyed the festivities today.
