VOR Presents… The Tanks Rumbled Through Red Square

On 7 November, a military parade on Red Square will mark the 70th anniversary of the Red October parade in 1941. On Tuesday, 1 November, there was a dress rehearsal for the event. Soldiers dressed in the uniforms of that terrible time marched over the Kremlin‘s pavement.

Next Monday, we’ll see real equipment that took part in the VOV in the re-enactment parade on Red Square. Workshops in the region around Moscow carried out the restoration work.

On 7 November, soldiers dressed in VOV-era uniforms, together with such legendary tanks as T-34s and T-60s, will parade across Red Square.
