Known as V-day, VE-day, or just plain Victory Day depending on where in the world you ask, nowhere in the world is the celebration of the Allies' triumph in WWII celebrated than Moscow, Russia. With thousands of troops and an impressive array of military hardware on parade in the Russian capitol, it would be hard to forget the service and triumph of Russia's veterans.

Over 11,000 troops, 101 military hardware and 68 fighter jets and helicopters have taken part in the parade on Moscow’s Red Square – the biggest event among thousands underway in Russia to celebrate WWII victory.

The Red Square Parade – which honors veterans of the bloodiest war in history and showcases Russia’s modern military might – is annually held in Moscow on May 9.

First to march on the bricks of the country’s main square came the future Russian officers - cadets of military schools and young Cossacks – followed by regiments of the Ground Forces, the Navy and other forces.
