Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today in honor of Victory Day (which fell on May 9), met with a group of World War II Red Army veterans living in Israel.  He praised the veterans and wished them good health and long life. 

"I am very moved to see you and the medals you received in the hard fighting against the Nazi enemy.  You are a symbol of Jewish heroism.  If the Red Army hadn’t stopped the Nazis, the State of Israel would not exist.  You are held in the highest esteem," the Prime Minister said.
 
The veterans thanked Prime Minister Netanyahu and gave him a special medal.
