Victory Day Celebrations With A Military Parade In Russia
The Russian army, which has been preparing for days, organized a military parade on the day of victory with Putin’s participation in Moscow on May 9th.
Helicopters accompanied the Russian jets flying over Moscow. As every year, thousands of soldiers marched on Red Square.
According to the official statement, 12 thousand soldiers, 190 military vehicles, 76 planes and helicopters participated in the parade.
On land, in addition to tanks such as T-72 B3, T-34, T-80BVM, many Russian-made missile systems were on the Red Square as in previous years.
Speaking at the ceremony, Russian President Putin underlined that he would defend Russia’s interests “harshly”.
This was described as Russia’s message to NATO, especially to the United States, which was going through a tense period.
Putin said: “Russia is constantly defending international law. At the same time, we will firmly defend our national interests to ensure the safety of our people.
May 9, when the Soviet Union defeated Nazi Germany and declared Victory Day in World War II, is celebrated with great events in Russia every year.
The first parade was held in Moscow on June 24, 1945, after the end of World War II.
