Pyongyang, May 9 (KCNA) — Leading newspapers of the DPRK on Tuesday dedicate articles to the 72nd anniversary of Russia’s victory in the Great Patriotic War.
Rodong Sinmun says that the victory of Russia in the Great Patriotic War was a historic victory the Soviet Union won at the cost of blood, shouldering the major heavy burden of the World War unprecedented in history in which 80 percent of the world population was involved.
It goes on:
The Korean people extend congratulations and friendly greetings to the Russian people on the 72nd anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, hoping that everything would go well in Russia.
The DPRK-Russia friendship favors the interests of the two peoples and guarantees peace in the region.

Minju Joson says that the Second World War, which imposed immeasurable misfortunes and sufferings upon mankind, was an aggressive and predatory war of fascist Germany and its allies to make all other peoples slaves and fascistize the whole world and, at the same time, an anti-fascist liberation war of the world democratic forces.
