Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev (L) and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin walks after laying wreath at a copy of Moscow’s statue of merchant Kuzma Minin and Prince Dimitry Pozharsky, the leaders of the struggle against foreign invaders in 1612 (background), in the ancient Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod, some 400 northeast of Moscow, on November 04, 2011, marking the National Unity Day. The new holiday was created in 2005 to replace the traditional November 7 celebration of the 1917 Bolshevik rise to power. The Kremlin has tried to give it historical significance by tying it to the 1612 expulsion of Polish and Cossack troops who briefly seized Moscow at a time of political disarray. .
