Liberation of Warsaw in WWII to be marked by fireworks display in Moscow on Friday
MOSCOW. Jan 14 (Interfax) - The liberation of Warsaw during WWII will be marked by a fireworks display in Moscow on Poklonnaya Hill, the press service for the Western Military District told Interfax.
"On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Warsaw's liberation from Nazi invaders, servicemen of the Marshal of Artillery Vladimir Mikhalkin Separate Guards Salute Battalion of the Western Military District will carry out the first festive artillery salute in 2020," the press service said.
Roughly 3,000 festive fireworks will be set off on Poklonnaya Hill.
The Polish capital was liberated during the Warsaw-Poznan Operation on January 17, 1945.
Moscow sees regular festive fireworks marking the liberation of Soviet and European cities. Fireworks are scheduled to be set off in 2020 to honor the liberation of Warsaw, Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Berlin, and Prague. Last year, Moscow hosted fireworks in honor of the liberation of Odessa, Sevastopol, Minsk, Vilnius, Chisinau, Bucharest, Tallinn, Riga, and Belgrade.

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
