What do younger Russians call World War 2?

The Soviets went long distances to pretend that they alone fought the Germans and one way was to call it "The Great Patriotic War". The new democratic Russia is still a little disingenuous about their role in the war, but have they started acknowledging that they had allies by renaming it?

The reason it was called "The Great Patriotic War" was because every man , woman and child all fought together to repel the Nazi invaders. Millions died in the defense of the Motherland and the "Great Patriotic War" was used as a rallying cry for the future generations needed to rebuild the country, and make sure this never happen again....

Which is easier to do when you kid yourself about bravely going it alone, but constantly agitating to the allies that you really do have to relieve the pressure.
"constantly agitating the allies"...Laughable. Constantly agitating you perhaps....!
