In Wednesday’s Pictures in the News, Ukraine, Russia and other post-Soviet countries mark the 67th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.  In Kiev, a boy climbs on a World War II monument at an open-air museum during Victory Day celebrations; a World War II veteran walks through Red Square in Moscow after a  parade; and Kyrgyz honor guards march near the Eternal Flame monument during celebrations in Bishkek.

On the lighter side, Dutch runners  participate in the National Flipper Race at the Dam square in Amsterdam.

Elsewhere, a Kashmiri government employee falls as he gets splashed by a water canon shooting purple water during a protest in Srinagar; Queen Elizabeth II delivers her speech during the State Opening of Parliament in the House of Lords; and a Syrian army soldier is injured after a roadside bomb hits his military truck in Daraa.

Add stops in Indonesia, Switzerland and Rio de Janeiro to round out the report.
