The 70th anniversary of the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany in WWII

Russia and countries in the former USSR have marked the 70th anniversary of the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany. The German Wehrmacht launched Operation Barbarossa in the early hours of June 22, 1941, and swept through vast tracts of Soviet territory almost to the point of taking Moscow before finally suffering defeats over the winter.
