Russia is poised to hold its annual Victory Day parade in Moscow's Red Square amid a surge of patriotism kindled by its annexation of Crimea.

A similar event marking the Soviet victory in World War Two will be held in the Crimean port of Sevastopol.

Russian media reported that President Vladimir Putin might go there, but his spokesman would not confirm that.

Festivities in Ukraine will be muted amid fears of provoking further violence in the south and east.
