Leaders from the US, France, Britain, Ukraine and Canada have gathered on Normandy Beach on June 6 to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

The night of June 5, 1944. The sea waves were calm and the full moon was in full bloom in the city of Normandy, France. More than 1,60,000 soldiers from America, Britain and France were preparing to attack the Nazi troops present in Normandy.

But suddenly a storm came. All the preparations were wasted. The supreme commander of the US army, Dwight Eisenhower, was forced to change his strategy. The American soldiers waited for the whole day. After midnight, thousands of soldiers landed on the beach of Normandy by parachute. Till morning, the Nazi soldiers did not even get a clue that the enemy army had reached so close.

As soon as it was light, American soldiers started attacking the Nazis at 6:30 in the morning. British and French soldiers came to support them. The Nazi soldiers were not expecting a simultaneous attack from land, sky and sea. They could not recover. In this, about 8,000 German soldiers lost their lives. At the same time, about 4,500 soldiers of the Allied countries (America, France, Britain) were killed.

The Allied forces attacked the Nazi army from all three sides – land, water and sky.

All this did not happen suddenly. Preparations for this were going on for about a year. Germany had an inkling that the Allies were going to do something big but America deliberately kept them confused by giving them wrong inputs. Although the codename of the Battle of Normandy was Operation Overlord, but this battle became so decisive and historic that D-Day became commonly known for it.

D-Day is remembered as the day of 'the beginning of the end of Hitler's rule'. Only after the launch of D-Day could Europe be liberated and the Nazi rule in Germany could be ended.

Today, exactly 80 years later, the leaders of America, France, Britain, Ukraine, Canada have gathered on this Normandy beach. US President Joe Biden, Britain's King Charles and PM Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky have arrived.

According to the New York Times, during this time they will try to send a message to the world that Russia's war against Ukraine is an extension of the Second World War. America and its allies are united against it.

Biden said that the struggle between dictatorship and freedom is not over yet. He said that he will not abandon Ukraine.

On this occasion, US President Joe Biden gave an emotional speech. He tried to link the incident of the Second World War and the recent Russian attack on Ukraine. He said that the evil forces against which the Allied forces fought are not yet finished.

Biden said that the struggle between dictatorship and freedom has not ended yet. Ukraine is the latest example of how a dictator (Putin) has attacked this country. But Ukraine will not back down. We will not abandon it.

Earlier, Russian President Putin had warned Western countries that Moscow could provide weapons to countries with the aim of attacking Western countries. According to a BBC report, Putin made this statement while criticizing the supply of long-range weapons to Ukraine by Western countries.

In fact, many countries including the US have given Ukraine the green signal to attack within Russia. Putin said that such action can create very serious problems. However, Putin did not clarify which countries Russia can supply weapons to.
