Ernest Leong

V-E Day is short for Victory in Europe Day, when the Allies accepted Germany's surrender, ending World War II in Europe.  The White House hosted an online discussion Wednesday, fielding questions about President Bush's upcoming trip through Europe and Russia, in honor of the historic moment.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Fried and Special Assistant to the President Thomas Graham answered questions Wednesday on the White House interactive website about President Bush's VE day visits to the Netherlands, Russia and Georgia. 

Questions were taken from around the world.  The discussion covered a range of topics, but mostly focused on issues within each country the president will visit.  A number of e-mails asked about Russia, its democratization process, and its role in European Union politics.

From May 6 to 10, President Bush will visit Latvia, the Netherlands, Russia, and Georgia.
