Russia’s military might was on full display on Wednesday as the country held its annual Victory Day parade in Moscow’s Red Square.
Vladimir Putin, who recently began his fourth term as Russian president, had pride of place at the display, which featured thousands of soldiers, scores of armored vehicles, and new hi-tech additions to the Russian forces.
Victory Day is held every year to celebrate the Soviet Red Army’s role in defeating Nazi Germany. The Victory Day Parade is the biggest date on Russia’s military calendar, and a massive deal around the whole country. As such, a spattering of vintage technology also made an appearance.
It takes place in Red Square, the symbolic heart of the Russian state. This year’s parade involved around 13,000 servicemen.
Highlights included the parade debuts of the Su-57 stealth jet, as well as the Uran-9 “robotank.”
