Victory Parade in Red Square, Moscow.
« on: May 09, 2017, 05:06:55 AM »
The Russians celebrate their "VE Day" on May 9th. Once again, they put on their usual impressive display of precision marching and hardware...fittingly led by a lone T34/85. The Russkies cannot be denied their moment patriotic triumphalism because Nazi-ism was effectively destroyed on the Ost-Front, and purchased by the blood of 20+ million Soviet citizens.

The Soviets always do a good parade.  I like how everyone is smiling as they march buy.

Yes...I noticed that too...but probably not quite "spontaneous"?!  Kim-Jing-Un's parade had more razzmatazz, but the Russkies look more business-like...if you know what I mean?

What's with the old Soviet "Hammer and Cycle" insignia. I thought Russia gave that up after the wall came down. Guess "ole Vlad" likes to hang onto the past.

Harks back to WW2 I suppose when they fought...and won...under that symbol.
