Many Americans think the US won World War 2, but it was allied effort and the Red Army inflicted most of the damage to the German Wehrmacht while the US defeated the Japanese Imperial forces.
The parade featured Tiger armored vehicles, BTR-80 armed personnel carriers, T-90 tanks,Msta-S self-propelled artillery systems, Buk-M2 and S-400 Triumph SAM systems, Pantsir S-1 missile-and-cannon systems, Iskander-M tactical missile systems and Topol-M mobile missile systems.
Five Mi-8 multirole helicopters carrying Russian state and military flags flew over Red Square.
The Russians also bring out the older World War 2 tanks, tracked vehicles and and weapon systems during this parade. We will show that video if it becomes available.
Cryptlogon indicates 200 protesters were arrested last night in Red Square. They were protesting the inauguration of Vlad Putin. Putin also cancelled participation in a G8 meeting and a state visit to Washington.
