Victory Day military parade kicks off in Moscow’s Red Square where, more than 130 pieces of military equipment rolled the streets on Thursday as part of the 74th Victory Day parade.
This year the parade again introduced some of Russia’s best weapon systems, including T-34 tanks, Terminator BMPT armoured fighting vehicles and S-400 missile systems.
More than 13,600 servicemen are taking part in Moscow’s Victory Day Parade. The traditional military aircraft flyover was cancelled at the last minute due to thick clouds over the Russian capital.
Hundreds of commemorative events are to be held in Russia and around the globe to mark the anniversary of the official capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet forces in 1945.
