Tanks to roll across Red Square again
A training square, similar in size to Red Square, has been built in Alabino in the Moscow Region. More than 8,000 personnel and over a 100 motorised units will take part in the parade.
It’s the first time since the fall of Soviet Union, military hardware, including BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles, BTR-80 armoured personnel carriers, T-90 tanks, Topol-M mobile missile launchers and Tu-160 and Tu-95MS strategic bombers will roll across Red Square.
The first Victory Parade was on June 24, 1945 on the order of the then Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Joseph Stalin.
