سنيار: تمتليء شوارع الساحة الحمراء في العاصمة الروسية موسكو هذه الأيام بالجنود والدبابات وراجمات الصواريخ وذلك في إطار الإستعدادات للإحتفال يوم غد بالذكرى الـ 69 للإنتصار الروسي على النازية في الحرب العالمية الثانية.

وسيشارك في العروض العسكرية أكثر من 11000 جندي من القوات المسلحة و69 طائرة حربية و عمودية و149 مركبة عسكرية، إلى جانب متطوعين من الشباب والشابات الروس ممن يشاركون في الإستعراضات ومنهم من يرتدون زي الجنود الروس في حقبة الحرب العالمية الثانية.

ولم تكن ذكرى دحر النازية في الحرب العالمية الثانية تأخذ زخما كبيرا من الإحتفالات في روسيا سابقا، غير أنّ فلاديمير بوتين أعاد لها زخمها، لاسيما هذه السنة بعد ضم جزيرة القرم الأوكرانية إلى روسيا.

 

Th Russian army has been preparing for a Victory Day parade due to talk place in Moscow's red Square on May 9 to mark Stalin's triumph over the Nazis

This year's event will be the biggest ever as Putin capitalises on high levels of patriotism following Russia annexing Crimea (pictured, police academy cadets practice marching)

More than 11,000 troops, 69 helicopters and warplanes and 149 armoured vehicles will take part, which is a record for the event

Victory Day used to be an event of solemn remembrance, according to the Moscow Times, but in recent years has become a patriotic celebration

The battle marked the last major European offensive of the War, and ended with Hitler's suicide and the eventual surrender of the Germany army (pictured, Tu-22M3 strategic bombers fly over the Kremlin)

Preparations for the parade, due to take place on May 9, have been taking place for days (pictured, a T-90 tank pulls up next to spectators in Moscow)

Spectators have flocked to see the preparations, and to take photographs of the vehicles, such as this strategic ballistic missile Topol-M launching platform

The Russian campaign during the Second World War was undoubtedly the bloodiest, with roughly 8.7million soldiers killed, and an estimated 11million civilian deaths

The Battle of Berlin, which ended with the capture of the German capital by Russian forces, lasted from April 20 until the morning of May 2

In Sevastopol, the capital of Crimea which was annexed by Putin in March, Russian troops have also been preparing for a Victory Day parade

While the holiday is usually celebrated as a joint event by Ukraine and Russia, this year celebrations in Ukraine are being toned down for fear of reprisals

On Twitter, some residents of Moscow wondered whether the jets overhead were practicing or preparing for military intervention (pictured, a soldier observes preparations from the top of an armoured vehicle)

The show of strength displays some of Russia's impressive military firepower, including this Buk-2M anti-aircraft missile launcher
