Memorable date of Russian military history: the battle for Berlin

On this day in 1945, troops of the 1st Belorussian front of Marshal Zhukov, and the 1st Ukrainian front of Marshal Konev were in full control of Berlin. After a desperate resistance, the capital of Nazi “Reich” fell under the victorious blows of our army. By 15 o’clock the enemy’s resistance had ceased, remnants of the Berlin garrison surrendered.
