The Russian Defense Ministry said the parade would include a fly-past over St. Basil’s Cathedral. Supersonic warplanes, TU-160 strategic bombers will take part in it. In addition, for the first time since 2010, II-70 ‘Doomsday’ command aircraft will take part in the exercise.
Under the circumstances, the II-70 would become the Russian president’s mid-air space command center. It has the latest technology. But Russia has kept all of its information secret.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, 11,000 troops will take part in the Victory Day parade in Red Square. It will display 131 military equipment.
Putin claims that the war in Ukraine is similar to the 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi forces.
At the start of the campaign in Ukraine on February 24, Putin said that trying to repel the invaders during the war had proved to be wrong, and that he had paid a high price.
“We will not make such a mistake for the second time,” he said. We have no right to make such a mistake. ”
Putin has called the ongoing war in Ukraine a fight against the US threat to Russia over NATO expansion.
World War II claimed the lives of 26 million people in the Soviet Union. For the past few years, Putin feels that the West has been trying to correct history in order to shorten the Soviet victory.
Russia’s biggest military victory was defeating Nazi Germany in World War II, except for the defeat of the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in 1812.
Meanwhile, the United States and its allies have stepped up arms supplies to Ukraine. Russian military officials have called on Putin to allow the use of powerful weapons in Ukraine.
