Ambassador of Grenada to the Russian Federation attended a military parade on Red Square marking the 73rd anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

On May 9, 2018, a military parade was held on Red Square in Moscow dedicated to the 73rd anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

Reviewing the troops was Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who reported to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin about the troops’ readiness for the parade.

The military parade traditionally began at 10 o’clock in the morning.

Over 13,000 personnel, thirty-three parade units marched through Red Square.

The marching formations were followed by a mechanised column headed by a T-34–85 war-era tank, escorted by all-terrain vehicles bearing the banners of ten fronts. New cutting-edge equipment was also on display on Red Square: Armata tanks, Kurganets infantry vehicles, Boomerang armoured personnel carriers, and Koalitsia-SV howitzers. The Terminator tank fire support vehicles, Uran robots, Katran and Korsar drones took part in the parade for the first time. Overall, 150 samples of military equipment drove through Red Square.

Aircraft wrapped up the parade as seventy-five airplanes and helicopters flew over Moscow, including two fifth-generation Su-57 Russian fighter jets, MiG 29 SMT fighter jets and the Kinzhal-MiG31K newest aviation systems with hypersonic missiles.

During the passage of troops from the stands watched the veterans of the Great Patriotic War, public figures and heads of diplomatic missions invited to the parade. Together with the Russian President, the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and the President of the Republic of Serbia, Alexander Vucic, observed the parade.
