Vladimir Putin opened Victory Parade in Moscow


Valeri Sharifullin/TASS“Dissociation between countries provoked beginning of the World War 2,” Vladimir Putin stated at his speech before the initiation of the Victory parade in Moscow, TASS reports.

“This horrible tragedy was not possible to prevent, first of all, due to the acquiescence in the malicious ideology based on racial superiority. Nazi took ownership of sovereign right of peoples to choose their own destiny and started the most atrocious and bloody war because of the basic dissociation between the leading countries of the world,” Vladimir Putin said.

Putin also mentioned that Nazi Germany brought the destructive ordnances down the Soviet Union. However our people withstood and did what appeared to be impossible, “banished the enemy therefrom whereabout it dared to come to our land.”

10 thousand people and more than 100 military machines took part at the 72d anniversary of the Great Victory in the WW2 parade. The military equipment intended for Arctic was shown for first time. Due to the bad weather conditions military aircraft parade was cancelled.
