Remembering the USSR's Most Iconic WWII Photos

Soviet photojournalist Yevgeny Khaldei recorded amazing scenes in the devastating war between Nazi Germany and the USSR. He was with the Soviet Army, when it reached Berlin, where he recorded one of the war's most symbolic images: a Red Army soldier raising a Soviet flag above the German Reichstag. 

Khaldei, who died in 1997, was born 100 years ago this month. In honor of his work, The Moscow Times publishes several of his priceless historical photos.
