Russian 70th Anniversary Military Victory Parade

Russian 70th Anniversary Military Victory Parade

The Russian army captured Nazi Berlin in May 1945, effectively ending World War Two.
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of this historic event, Russian President Putin put on a military parade to end all military parades.
The parade on Moscow's Red Square was attended by heads of friendly-to-Russia states, World War Two veterans and Steven Seagal.
Also in attendance were thousands and thousands of cadets, soldiers, fighter jets, weapons systems and the newest Russian tank, the T-14 Armata.
It was a very impressive display of strength, patriotism and an excellent opportunity to put Russia latest weapons in the shop window.
