May 9th, 2010 is Victory day Parade, with a couple of surprises!

May 9th, 2010 in Russia is the 65th anniversary of Victory day. This is the day that Russia celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany! This year there is a couple of big surprises.

First Surprise is that battalions from Britain, France and the United States will be marching along side battalions of Russians and Second Surprise will be that for the first time the giant Topol-M nuclear missile launcher to be paraded with the other armory present. I wonder if the Americans will have the same feelings that I had when I saw the Red Square the first time? It was one of the high points of my life…

They say that over 10,000 men will march and several hundred pieces of armory will be displayed. Not including the multiples of military aircraft overhead during the event.

Sounds like a worth while event to go to this year…

Windows to Russia!

PS: Not all are happy about these foreigners marching on the Red Square! The Communist party is pretty upset about having Yanks on their Red Square… 🙂
