RED SQUARE REVIVES MILITARY PARADE OF 1941

Moscow/ More than 5,000 soldiers marched today in Moscow’s Red Square to commemorate the historic military parade of 1941 that took place in the middle of a siege by Nazi troops and after which many Soviet soldiers went straight to the front.

With uniforms and weapons of the time, participants in the parade marched in front of the tribune of honour in which they were veterans of that historic march, which according to many historians it was crucial to the defence of Moscow, as it raised the morale of the Army Soviet.

A total of 28,500 Soviet soldiers participated in the march which celebrated the 24th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, an event that is now one hundred years old and on which the Russians are divided.

Many of the units that participated in that parade of 1941 marched directly from Red Square to the front.

Before the commemorative parade, a historical reproduction was made in which some 300 actors came out dressed in uniforms and carrying weapons from different times of Russian history.

Then, prominent Russian singers performed the Anthem of the Defenders of Moscow and a cadet unit paraded with flags used by Russian soldiers on the fronts of World War II, called here Great Patriotic War.

To misinform the Germans, the march of 1941 was announced for ten o’clock in the morning, but it was carried out two hours before and the units that participated in it were prevented from being attacked from the air.

After the commemorative parade, an open-air museum was opened in the Red Square where, during the day, the inhabitants of the capital and tourists will be able to see some of the weapons used by the Soviet Army in the fight. (November 7, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
