Russian Soldiers Reenact WWII-Era Parade on Red Square

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, Russian soldiers marched on Red Square to celebrate the 77th anniversary of a Red Army military parade that took place during The Battle of Moscow — one of the key battles of World War II.  

The parade was first held in 1941 and became an annual celebration in subsequent years.

In the Soviet Union, Nov. 7 was also celebrated as a holiday marking the beginning of the October Revolution.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
