Victory Day in the post-Soviet space: how they celebrated before and where they held the parade in 2020


Today in Russia and in a number of other former republics of the Soviet Union, Victory Day is celebrated. In Moscow, Minsk and some other capitals of the post-Soviet countries, ceremonies will be held in honor of this great date.


Who celebrates and does not celebrate May 9 in the expanses of the former USSR


The collapse of the Soviet Union and the emergence of new independent states in the post-Soviet space led to a partial revision of attitudes towards Victory Day. The first to express their negative attitude to the significant date were the Baltic republics, in which Victory Day is not celebrated and is not a day off.

The authorities of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have their own, special look at the events of those long years. If they consider themselves the heirs of the "forest brothers" and the Baltic SS legions, then this is really not their holiday. In all other post-Soviet states, Victory Day has been celebrated since 1991.

Currently, it remains a festive and non-working day not only in Russia, but also in Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Moldova, as well as in unrecognized and partially recognized state entities that arose in the post-Soviet space - Abkhazia, South Ossetia, the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic, Donetsk People’s Republic, Lugansk People’s Republic, and Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

In Ukraine, Victory Day was a public holiday from 1991 to 2015, and then, in view of the cardinal change of course and the proclamation of a policy of desovetization, May 9 is celebrated as Victory Day over Nazism in World War II. Moreover, any Soviet symbols, including the Victory Banner, are prohibited in Ukraine after the adoption of the relevant law. Celebrate victory without the symbols of the winners ...

Two military parades during quarantine


In 2020, due to quarantine measures, the parade in Moscow was canceled; only an air parade of aircraft and helicopters of the Russian Aerospace Forces took place. However, in Minsk, despite the epidemic, the parade was not canceled: President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, on principle, did not refuse to solemnly celebrate Victory Day with a traditional military parade.


Alexander Lukashenko in the form of the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of Belarus

Recall that earlier post-Soviet Belarus celebrated Victory Day on a special scale. And this is not surprising: the Belarusian people really suffered very much during the years of World War II.

Turkmenistan became another country in the post-Soviet space that decided to hold a military parade on May 9, 2020, despite the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the fact that last year the parade was not held here, and the authorities limited themselves to laying flowers and honoring veterans, on the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory in Ashgabat, soldiers of the Turkmen army marched in the parade and a column of military equipment passed. President of the country Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov called May 9 a sacred date for all.

Immortal regiments: from Kiev to Tashkent


Since 2015, Ukraine has been celebrating Victory Day unofficially. Ukrainians who respect the Soviet past, the victory of the peoples of the USSR over German Nazism, are trying to celebrate the holiday, despite all the official prohibitions. So, in Kiev and a number of other cities of the country marches of the "Immortal Regiment" took place. In 2018, such a procession in the Ukrainian capital was marked by a fight between its participants and Ukrainian nationalists. In 2020, the march of the "Immortal Regiment" in Kiev was canceled due to quarantine.


Kiev, the procession of the "Immortal Regiment"

Unlike Ukraine, Georgia, which also has a difficult relationship with Russia, has always held celebrations in honor of Victory Day. Only this year they were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, last year the processions of the “Immortal Regiment” were held, except for Tbilisi, in Batumi, Gori, Akhalkalaki and Ninotsminda.

In Kazakhstan, due to quarantine measures in 2020, the Immortal Regiment campaign is held online in live mode. In the past 2019, as in previous years, processions of the Immortal Regiment, events with laying wreaths at the graves of heroes of the Great Patriotic War were held in the capital of the country and in the cities of Kazakhstan. The attitude to the holiday in Kazakhstan is the most respectful.


The capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe, met on May 9, 2020 with the laying of wreaths at the memorials of participants in the Great Patriotic War. Solemn events organized by the Ministry of Defense of the Republic. Last year, a military parade was held in Dushanbe, in which 2 thousand Tajik soldiers and a combined company of Russian troops from the 201st military base participated. In the capital of Kyrgyzstan Bishkek last year, a procession of the "Immortal Regiment", a concert, and the laying of wreaths took place. This year the military parade due to quarantine was canceled.

In Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, in 2018 and 2019. also, wreath-laying events were held, fireworks were held, and military equipment was demonstrated. For the Uzbek people, the Great Patriotic War was also a huge shock: of the 1,5 million Uzbeks who went to the front, 500 thousand people did not return from the front - every third resident of the Uzbek SSR died, giving his life for a single homeland for all the peoples of the USSR at that time.

On May 9, processions of the “Immortal Regiment” were traditionally held in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Moldova. Due to quarantine restrictions introduced in 2020, part of the celebrations in these countries also had to be abandoned. But in any case, regardless of the political situation and quarantine, Victory Day remains a sacred date for hundreds of millions of people, especially in the post-Soviet space. After all, the memory of the war is one of the main connecting threads between our peoples.

    but how else? In the mass grave next to my grandfather are Ukrainian, Uzbek, Jewish and children of many nationalities.

    But how could it be otherwise? Everyone had one homeland and did not make out the bullet by nationality! She beat in the heart, but it was all one- Motherland!

        What the fuck are Slavic people ?! The Great Victory was won by the Great Soviet people! What, in Kazakhstan or in Kyrgyzstan, in Uzbekistan or in Tajikistan, are there now no rights to a common Great Victory?
        They didn’t divide people by nationality then, therefore they kept the unity of our people, therefore they won.

          Actually, Stalin, in correspondence with the leaders of the Allies, wrote “we Russians ...”,
          The Allies also called us Russian, not Soviet
          “Tips“ we became during the Cold War
          Salin raised a toast to the health of the Russian people
          Thus, the Russian people and other peoples of historical Russia, temporarily called the Soviet Union, won the war.
          Stories about the great Soviet people remained in the Brezhnev era

        I immediately remembered:
        "- What happened then? Coup? Wake? Anniversary?
        - Yes, nothing special. Simply. It's time for the naked kings

        The Vlasov flag looks like Andreevsky, not who did not hang it. In ROA, tricolor was used by General Smyslovsky. The same can be said about the French, they have flags of the SS Charlemagne division all over the country and nothing, they live for themselves and do not bother. Someone in France today demands to remove them, like the flags of collaborators? No one!

        Not necessarily: they were raised by Hollywood and the surrounding reality. Every second (and somewhere already every first) will say that "the Russian army" took Berlin and then it liberated Prague. Moreover, it knows for sure that his grandfather "was there", and it "can repeat." What to repeat?
        The Victory flag was banned by order of the EU.

      I fully agree with this vision of the significance of Victory Day. hi.
      But here is what I did not like in reality. In our country, this is my personal opinion, this holiday is beginning to gradually turn into a carnival. This is when a lot of external and little content. I will explain.
      I have never tied the St. George ribbon to a car or myself.
      I did not tie it for the sole reason that my hand would later not raise it, throw it away or burn it, or else how to get rid of it after the holiday. And then I do not like to watch these tapes tied to cars and hanging there in dirt and dust. Or yesterday I saw a story about the sale of tapes in Moscow stores for 7 rubles. And it's not about the price.
      For me, a ribbon is a ribbon on the awards of my grandfather, on the gates of the house (in our area, the star and the St. George ribbon were on the homes of all veterans) while he was alive, because a veteran lived in this house. But it was not publicly available, it is a sign - a sign of merit, a sign of distinction.
      I do not like stickers at all - we can repeat it either on Berlin. Least of all, my grandmothers, and I think my grandfather too (just from him did not hear any arguments on this subject) would like to repeat. Because they went through it and knew the price, the real price, and not the one at 7 rubles.
      And who could repeat in our time, for example, these are guys from the sixth company of the Pskov paratroopers or the pilot Peshkov in Syria (not only they are alone of course, but I think the example is clear).
      Many who want to repeat?
      While I was a teenager, I managed to bring my son to the Brest Fortress and to Mamaev Kurgan, I’m sorry I didn’t have the opportunity to bring my son back to Piskaryov cemetery in Leningrad. This is the memory of the feat and sacrifices of my people (not dividing by nationality).
      And now, there is more and more external tinsel: we can repeat the traditional barbecue on May 9, buy goods decorated with a bang-patriotic
      , or as I recently read - divers carried underwater portraits of the dead divers during WWII. Well, let's now surgeons carry portraits in the operating rooms, agronomists in the fields, but if anyone had the profession of taking out the trash? Those where they should pass or pass with portraits?

      PS The farther from the Second World War, the less the next generation understands that it was in reality. What happened to our people.

        Goblin! I firmly shake my hand for the comment !!!
        I completely agree, Victory, like the Immortal Regiment, has been privatized by the authorities and has become to some extent a formality and PR for them.
        Threat. The Fed.channels especially struck me with their cynicism, about remodels, like yesterday’s “armor is strong”, except for nausea, I will not say anything, but the advertisement ... in rare screenings of films about the war, this already causes anger and hatred.

        THANK YOU SO MUCH!
        I was able to visit all these places with my son except Mamaev Kurgan, it was far from Belarus.
        You wrote about everything that I feel, today I want to turn the GREAT VICTORY of the WHOLE SOVIET PEOPLE into propaganda. But on this day we must remember all those who did not see this VICTORY, but about them a minute of silence in the evening. Minute is VERY LITTLE They deserve more on this day.

        For example, since 2015, I tied the Guards Tape inside the car to the rear-view mirror (brought from Russia at my request). It will fade, retouch with a marker, because I’m not going to throw it away. Still, I made a white tape on the rear window. On highways with a sound signal "three cheers" I welcome truckers from the former republics of the USSR. Many respond with light signals of headlights, some with sound signals, although, according to German traffic rules it is forbidden. You know how my mood rises, yes, I think, and truckers too! They are not politicians, hardworking hard workers! Below, a photo of my car from the rear:

            you already pulled up, my father was born in the city of Stalin in 40, his father my grandfather went to the front as a volunteer and died near Stalingrad

            Your comment can only be attributed to the holiday libations.

            Wake up, then maybe rethink my comment.

            why is it so? here on the next branch about Gosman one scored 45 likes about the grandchildren of the Tashkent front, which I am, too, and I met with the guys who fought against you, and they consider you fascists, and the guys and the Russians and Ukrainians, in fact you you don’t really know what you’re fighting for, you are against the fascists of Bandera, and they are against the fascists of Yanukovych supported by Russia, you don’t notice that you were all divorced?

                oops, yes I drank and continue to celebrate a holiday holy for me and my family, and is this a symptom in your opinion? what? in the fact that the politicians divorced the people who opposed the Nazis, for civil war and everyone blames each other,

                  Parsley Porokh sent Natsik and APU to Donbass .. In the Donbass people stopped the columns themselves and Yanyk didn’t stand at the head ... And just like they didn’t want Yanyk, but they wanted to speak Russian .. And they went to hang them, as in Crimea ... Crimea was lucky ... Donbass took a sip .. And the battles went on in the same place as in the Great Patriotic War ... And against the same. Then the Nazis came to us to “save” from communism, and now from the Russian language ... Although I think the true reasons are clear to you.

          igor67 (Igor) And what do you want if, according to a “filmoscope”, in the news channels (close to those in power) they say that the authorities of For exampleland dismantled the Soviet monument ... or, for example, the Netherlands advocate anti-communization ... Yes, there are such facts, but simple, frightened citizens who remember the present past - the majority! They take care of the graves, they carry the memory that their rulers do not need ...

    After all, the memory of the war is one of the main connecting threads between our peoples.

    Absolutely correct! The West has long realized this. Do not spare efforts and means to break these threads. And not unsuccessfully enough, unfortunately.

    Of the 1,5 million Uzbeks who went to the front, 500 thousand people did not return from the front — every third resident of the Uzbek SSR died, having given his life for a single homeland for all the peoples of the USSR at that time.

    I have great respect for our fallen Soviet soldiers, but the phrase the author needs to build correctly - every third drafted into the ranks of the Soviet Army resident of the Uzbek SSR.

    Since 2015, Ukraine has been celebrating Victory Day unofficially.

    Already got these propaganda articles on each occasion and without. Officially, May 9 is a state holiday of Ukraine. Moreover, since the date fell on Saturday, Monday is also a day off.

      That's right ..)))
      May XNUMXth is Victory Day over Nazism in World War II .. This is your official holiday today.
      For us, May 9 is Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War ..
      And the end of World War II - September 2, 1945.
      So that officially they celebrate in Ukraine something is not the same as always ... But in Ukraine, everyone celebrates Victory Day as usual, but unofficially ..
      Greetings from Zaporozhye.

        The official wording is correct (since the Fatherland-USSR disintegrated and does not exist officially)
        While Soviet people live, it will be World War II that will celebrate Victory Day. Because they are carriers of memory of their Fatherland-USSR.
        On such a holiday, all the same, everyone is engaged in manipulation.
        By the Victory’s division, by pulling over oneself, and with the symbols in general it’s too much ... And the formats of the celebration .. in general, everything is debatable. They began to celebrate in a modern way - to arrange shows.
        The iron generation endured the hardships of that war, survived and won, saved its country and peoples.
        Great gratitude and low bow to them for this.
        Eternal memory to the fallen.
        Happy Victory Day!

      From domestic there are two ceremonial phaetons GAZ-14-05 "Seagull" 1987 release. Old, but on the go, used as a spare machine. No new money. And these two "Red Banners" are made only in two copies, only for Belarus. This is a gift from China. You have to live as you can. Incidentally, these units accelerate to 200 km \ hour in 14 seconds.

      Well, still ... the main task now is to protect people from the coronavirus. No matter how much speculation, in fact, millions of patients around the world. So - it’s better not to risk it. But the Parade will not run away, and the memory will also not disappear ... nowhere ...

    Well ... GDP has a small vent. Against the background of Zelensky, he looked plus or minus on something similar. So everything is not so bad.
