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.
