President Putin to watch military parade in Red Square

Russia is marking the 69th anniversary of the victory in World War II, which is widely referred to in Russia and other former Soviet republics as the Great Patriotic Was of 1941 to 1945.


More than 11,000 soldiers and officers of the Armed Forces, law enforcement agencies, cadets of military colleges and universities, as well as cadets of junior Army and Navy schools will take part in the traditional Victory Day parade on Moscow’s Red Square. The troops will be reviewed by Defense Minister, Army General Sergei Shoigu.

The parade will take commands from Colonel-General Oleg Salyukov, the Chief Commander of Ground Troops.

By tradition, President Vladimir Putin, who is Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces, will attend the parade, which will be covered this year by more than 600 reporters.
Like in the previous years, the parade consists this year of a march-past, a motorized display and the aerial exhibition. It has a novelty this year - the march-past of the mounted equestrian escort of the Presidential regiment.

The motorized display includes 151 vehicles and units of technology and the aerial display will be performed by 68 aircraft and helicopters.

Military parades will also be held in eight urban centers bearing the title of ‘hero-cities’ - Sevastopol, Kerch, St. Petersburg, Smolensk, Murmansk, Tula, Novorossiysk, Volgograd - as well as in the sixteen cities where the staffs of military districts, fleets, combined arms armies, and the Caspian flotilla are located.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
