Russian Air Forces Promise Good Weather for Victory Day

Russia’s Air Force will ensure good weather over downtown Moscow on Victory Day, May 9, to make perfect conditions for holding traditional military parade on the Russian capital's Red Square, according to Air Force commander, Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev.

      “We have 10 aircrafts at Chkalovsky airfield, they are ready for loading with reagents to prevent rain on Red Square,” Bondarev told journalists on Monday.

      Nationwide May 9 Victory Day celebrations commemorate the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II. The day is widely considered one of the most important holidays in Russia. This year Russian authorities have made four days off dedicated to Victory Day celebrations.

      Moscow officials traditionally ensure good weather for city residents to enjoy two rain-free national holidays in May and June (Russia Day on June 12). The technique of cloud dispersal, or cloud seeding, dates back to the Soviet era. The substances used can include silver iodide, dry ice and cement powder.
