I order you to begin preparations for the military parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War in Moscow, the capital of Russia and other cities. We will do this on June 24, the day the legendary and historic parade of the winners took place, when the fighters who fought near Moscow and defended Leningrad, who fought near Stalingrad, liberated Europe, took over assault on Berlin.
Putin also offered to hold the Immortal Regiment rally on July 26, but noted that “if there are threats”, it will be postponed to a later date.
We have to carefully assess the risks
– declared the president.
Recall that less than a month before May 9, the Head of State canceled all celebrations on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War due to the coronavirus pandemic, but promised that the victory day parade and the action of the immortal regiment would certainly take place, but later (by the way, on May 9, it took place online).
Directly during the holidays, an air parade took place in the capital – 75 planes and helicopters flew over Red Square, and in the evening, a festive salute took place.
