On this day, the Day of Victory over fascism is celebrated, since on May 9, Nazi Germany signed the World War II capitulation, although the Second World War was finally over only a few months later by the unconditional capitulation of imperial Japan after the tragic use of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Namely, on May 9, 1945, Soviet Marshal Zhukov ratified the agreement on German capitulation before the Allies, which was signed by German Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel the day before in the name of the Third Reich.
The biggest parade on this day is held every year on May 9 in Moscow, with the great Parade of military and aviation. In this parade, the latest achievements of Russian technology and equipment from the Second World War are shown every year.
Today, for the fourth time in a row, the Ceremonial Marsh “Immortal Regiment” is held from 5 pm.
