Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, together with Myanmar Tatmadaw delegation members attended the parade held in Moscow’s Red Square to commemorate the 75th Anniversary Victory Day of Great Patriotic War in the Russian Federation yesterday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, Defence Minister Army General Sergei Kuzhugetovich Shoigu, senior military and civilian officials, military veterans, presidents from 12 countries and military heads, defence ministers and senior officers from 19 countries and invited guests attended the ceremony. They were seated according to social distancing rules. Some 14,000 troops in the parade took their positions after which Army General Sergei Kuzhugetovich Shoigu inspected the military columns.
After the speech of President Vladimir Putin, military columns, units of the mechanized military divisions, led by Colonel General Oleg Solyukov, marched and saluted in formation, together with the flyover of aircraft from the Russian Air Force. The parade was also participated by about 1,400 soldiers from 13 foreign countries. The Victory Day commemorates the surrender of the Nazis in Berlin, Germany, on 8 May 1945. It was 9 May Moscow time due to the time difference. Although the 75th-anniversary fell on 9 May, it was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. After the pandemic had been controlled to a certain extent, the event was celebrated on 24 June 2020 to honour the first celebration of Victory Day on 24 June 1945, according to the report of the Office of Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
