General Information
The Russian army Moscow Military Victory Parade of 2011 will be held the 09 May 2011. Victory Day marks Germany’s surrender to the Soviet Union in 1945. It became the end of the Great Patriotic War for the USSR, which lost about 25 million citizens in the four years of fighting. Interestingly, until its 20th anniversary (May 9, 1965), Victory Day was not a major holiday, unlike, for instance, May 1, and was considered a work day. Apart from the anniversaries in 1965 and 1985, Victory Day celebrations in the Soviet Union did not feature a military parade. This tradition started in 1995. The biggest military parade is in Moscow’s Red Square, showcasing Russia’s military forces and equipment with aircraft, helicopters, tanks, missile systems and more. Most veterans wear their medals as they head to the parade or an event organized by a local veteran organization.
