The Victory Day is traditionally celebrated with the military parade in the Red Square in Moscow. About two thousand war veterans are present as guests of honour at the parade for the 69th anniversary since the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

      The Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War was established by the order of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on May 8, 1945. Holding the military parade in the Red Square became one of the main traditions on the Victory Day.

      Over 11 thousand military men, 151 units of modern weapons and military equipment, as well as 69 aircrafts and helicopters are taking part in the Victory Parade today.

      In addition to that, the horse show Traditions of Russia will take place at the Poklonnaya Gora: the Presidential Orchestra, Cavalry Escort of Honour, and teams of the Kremlin Riding Academy will perform for all comers. 

      Celebrations will be crowned with fireworks at 10 pm in 16 places in Moscow.
