Russian troops wearing World War II uniforms
on Thursday marched across Moscow’s Red
Square in memory of the historic 1941 parade
when Soviet soldiers went directly to the
battlefield to fight the Nazis.
The annual re-enactment featuring some
4,000 troops and T-34 tanks commemorated
the legendary November 7, 1941 parade
whose participants marched from Red Square
to the front line, becoming a symbol of
courage and patriotism.
Some 7,000 guests including World War II
veterans watched the parade.
“Our duty is to continue to be victorious and
build a great country,” Moscow Mayor Sergei
Sobyanin said at the event.
The Red Army’s triumph in the deadliest war
in history is seen as a huge point of pride in
Russia.
In recent years, the victory in the 1941-1945
conflict — known in Russia as the Great
Patriotic War — has acquired signs of cult
status.
Nazi Germany’s invasion on June 22, 1941,
caught Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin by
surprise and Nazi troops were able to come
close to Moscow.
The November 7 parade was seen as a
much-needed morale booster and enraged
Adolf Hitler.
Psychologist Irina Bobakova, whose
grandfather was killed in 1941 in the battle for
Moscow, said that it was important for a
country to honour the memory of its history.
