On June 24th, the 75th Victory Parade commemorating the ending of World War II took place, after a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

It is 75 years since the then USSR defeated Nazi Germany. World War Two cost more than 20 million Soviet lives.

Russian President Vladimir Putin gave an address:

“I congratulate you on the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the victory that determined the future of the planet for decades to come and forever remained in history as the most grandiose in its scale, significance and spiritual, moral height,” he said.

“Her [USSR] soldiers (the Red Army) did not need war, nor other countries, nor glory, nor honor. They sought to finish off the enemy, win and return home. And they paid an irreplaceable price for the freedom of Europe. Many hundreds of thousands of soldiers were killed in a foreign land. Our duty is to keep this in mind. To remember that the main burden of the struggle against Nazism fell on the Soviet people,” he said.

The Russian troops were joined by representatives from 13 foreign countries. These include: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Moldova, Mongolia, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

In Moscow, the parade was attended by 15,000 personnel, 234 units of ground combat equipment, 80 aircraft and helicopters. Over 40 ground crews will take place on Red Square: officers, sergeants and soldiers of various formations, cadets of military universities, Suvorov, Nakhimov and cadets, Young Army Cadets and representatives of other law enforcement agencies.

Parades were not only held in Moscow. In the Amur Belogorsk, about 1,400 military personnel and 45 units of military equipment went into service.

The city of Belogorsk is the smallest of 28 cities in Russia, where the Victory Parade is held with the passage of a column of military equipment. The headquarters of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District is located there.

* it’s not really the ’75th parade’, as the ‘parade to celebrate 75 years since the end of the Great Patriotic War’ – aside from the first one straight after the war, they didn’t become a thing until the 70s.

BMWA1

I think 60’s? After 1946 stop….

Ilya

I wasn’t sure, and was being lazy – thanks for the correction! :)

verner

and where were the dumbed down morons from washington dc or the effeminate pseudo-fags from westminster or the out of touch with reality french useless sops when russia commemorated the end of ww2 – cowering at home of course. useless and worthless as they are.

The ones in power in the west lost the war. They are the sons and grandsons of the nazis.

This is what we ( the people ) should understand. Fuck, the leftist mobs are even asking for the statues of Saint Michael ( the archangel!!! ) to be put down. They are showing their true colors as satanists.

The Russian military certainly knows how to give the world a military parade of such precision that has no rivals.
I watched the whole parade in real time on RT. It was magnificent.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Did you notice the Russian women in best dress uniforms?

In the West, they would be wearing combat fatigues, to hide their pot bellies, lol.
I watched it with my 14 year old son, to let him see the military who saved us all from the death camps, and the German language.

FlorianGeyer

Yes,all the participants were fit and healthy and even the older officers were in good shape.

Uniform’s have always been designed to convey a message to the people that wear them and those who look at them.
