Story by ZBC Reporter

A military parade to commemorate the 78th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory over Nazi Germany in the 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War is being held at Moscow’s Red Square.

The parade began with the march of the Honour Guard’s banner group carrying the Russian national flag and the legendary Victory Banner across Red Square.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, war veterans and guests from Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries, who arrived in Moscow for Victory Day are watching the parade from the stands on Red Square and will lay flowers at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

This year’s Russia’s Victory Day Parade on Moscow’s Red Square involves over 8,000 troops, including 530 fighters of the special military operation in Ukraine, and 125 items of military hardware.
