Red Square parade in Moscow
Thousands of Russian servicemen dressed in historical uniforms marched through Moscow's Red Square on Monday to mark the 75th anniversary of the 1941 parade when Soviet soldiers headed to the front lines of World War Two, Reuters reported.
Alongside tanks and waving flags, the soldiers wearing 1940s uniforms re-enacted the historic parade, watched by some World War Two veterans. Russia's TASS news agency said around 5,000 people were taking part in the march.
Russian World War Two veteran Ivan Bushmin, 89, came to Red Square to recall the 1941 march.
