Russian soldiers goose-step in St. Petersburg, as U.S. Secretary-General Kofi Annan watches in a ceremony to commemorate the 58th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. Annan laid flowers at a monument in Piskaryovskoye Cemetery, where many war victims are buried. Historians say nearly 1 million of the city's 3 million residents died when Nazi forces kept St. Petersburg (then called Leningrad) under siege for 900 days. Marches and vigils were held throughout Russia.
