Vladimir Putin signed the amendments to the law "On the days of military glory and memorable dates of Russia." The day of the end of World War II was moved from the second to the third of September 1945. Earlier, the State Duma adopted the document and approved the Federation Council.

Information on this is available on the legal information portal. According to the document, a new day of military glory is introduced - September 3. The initiative was introduced by a group of deputies led by Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense Vladimir Shamanov.

The Presidential Human Rights Council previously stated that it considers unacceptable carry the end date of World War II from the second of September a day later. The reason is that the third of September is a memorial day for the victims of the Beslan terrorist attack.
