Every year, on May 9, millions of Russians with tearsVictory Parade is watching. This day became a national holiday almost seventy years ago. Finally, an act on the surrender of German troops was signed on May 8, 1945. On the morning of May 9, Moscow gave a salute. Thirty volleys of a hundred guns marked the great Victory. On May 24, the Supreme Commander informed about the decision to hold a Victory Parade on Red Square, on the main square of the country.
GK Zhukov took not only the "examination" of the participants, but also the Victory Parade of 1945 instead of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief JV Stalin. And Marshal K. K. Rokossovsky commanded them. Together they drove on white and black horses across the Red Square. By the way, picking a horse Zhukov was not so easy. Snow White Idol, a horse of the Terek breed, was not a novice in such matters. He participated in the parade on November 7, 1941. But it so happened that the rehearsal of the Victory Parade did not pass over him. He was taught to make stops at the right time, accustomed to tanks, volleys of guns, screams, so that at a critical moment he was not afraid. The idol did not disappoint.
On this day the weather did not spoil, it was pouringrain, so I had to cancel air shows and demonstration of civilians. But all this could not overshadow the solemnity of the moment and the joy of all those gathered in the square. The Victory Parade took place. The combined regiments marched along the Red Square, the combined orchestra played a special march for each of them, 200 enemy banners were thrown on a special pedestal near the Mausoleum as a token of victory over Nazi Germany, and the heroic dog-sipper Julbars, on Stalin's personal order, was carried on his tunic.
Now the Victory Parade is held every year in every city as a tribute to the lost heroes and as a sign of respect to the survivors, as gratitude to those who fought for their country.</ p>
