      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.
