Word has it that Trump might want to attend the Victory Day military parade in Moscow. Это наша победа - “This is our victory!” has never seemed more fitting.

It is a patriotic holiday; but the President of the United States should shy away from celebrating the patriotism of another country. It is their private celebration.
