CSTO Secretary General proposes two dates for holding the postponed Victory Parade

Two new dates for the postponed military parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory were proposed by the Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Stanislav Zas in an interview with RIA News.


Answering journalists' questions, the CSTO Secretary General expressed confidence that the parade postponed will take place in any case, but this will depend on the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection. However, he proposed two possible dates for the parade. According to Zasya, one of the dates may be June 24 - the day of the first parade on Red Square in 1945, and the second - the beginning of September, i.e. the day of the end of World War II.

(...) The decision, of course, will be made by the leadership of the Russian Federation. In my opinion, at least two dates can be considered - on June 24, when the very first Parade took place in 1945, this would be symbolic. (...) As the second option, one can consider the beginning of September - the day of the end of World War II. It would also be symbolic. Other dates are possible, of course.

- said the CSTO Secretary General.

In addition, he recalled that the CSTO countries were seriously preparing for the parade on Red Square on May 9 and were ready to send their military units to participate in the solemn procession. Whether foreign military will participate in the transferred parade, he did not explain.

Earlier, Military Review reported a decision to repeat the airborne part of the parade on May 9, 2020. It will take place along with the ground part of the transferred parade, but the date has not yet been determined.

    Yes, damn it as much as possible, they simply can’t carry out the parade normally, some kind of excessive bureaucracy is there, well, is it really so difficult to mark one date (since they couldn’t do it on the 9th) and prepare for it?

      Because, most likely by June 24, the situation with coronavirus will not get better. And maybe even more complicated.

    Victory Day May 9th. And the Parade is also May 9th. If it was not possible to hold the Parade due to force majeure, then this can be taken with understanding.
    The parade at any other time is a show off. Ponte throws those who have low self-esteem. The descendants of the winners wish to assert themselves at the expense of their ancestors.

      Even more than that - not the descendants of the winners, but those who decided to rank themselves among them ..

        Recently, there are those who want to join just the vanquished. For example, everyone knows the mattress. According to them, it is better to be a bar of soap in the enlightened west than to be proud of the ancestors in Russia.

      Rather, the descendants of the vanquished want to throw a bone to the descendants of the victors, for they fear their wrath.

        Judge from your bell. The higher the bell tower, the more the show off.

    And what, on June 24, just 75 years of the very first Victory Parade, is very symbolic.

        T. to the Russian Federation did not withdraw invitations to foreign partners at events, they will wait for the end of quarantine not only in Russia.
        Personally, I also think June 24th is the best date.
        And in September, it would be nice to have a Parade in September, closer to Japan. Better in Vladivostok.
        Both the PRC and the DPRK. And Mongolia, I think, will not mind.

          I agree that we need such a parade. Because after the celebration of May 9, the heroes of this short Soviet-Japanese war are somewhat forgotten. They seem to fall out of the common feat of our people. And here were examples of heroism no less, see information about the Hero of the Soviet Union Maria Tsukanova. Or about Pyotr Ilyichev and Nikolay Vilkov, Mikhail Yanko ...
          The only thing is that there is not enough space for a parade of a serious scale, but we’ll come up with something.

      June 24 is a very suitable date for the Victory Parade, which will most likely be used by the "guarantor" and his "oligarch friends" to conduct a powerful campaign (under the guise of patriotic agitation) in order to force people to vote "FOR" the so-called "amendments to Constitution. "

    You can hold a parade, congratulate war veterans, and then forget them with their problems until the next Victory Day.
    You can not hold a parade, congratulate the war veterans and deal with solutions to their problems until the next Victory Day.
    And even better is the Parade, and congratulations and not to forget them with the solution of their problems .. hi

    P.S. I think everyone will support the third option ... Is it always the same as with the third option?

      Omar, salam! Nice to see you!!!
      You can hold a parade on November 7. The revolution made the country, which from the agrarian became a superpower, which was able to withstand the whole of Europe, which fell ill with nationalism.
      On this day in 41g. troops from the parade went to the front and began to break the ridge to the Nazis. Politically and psychologically, this parade was the beginning of the victory over Nazi Germany. hi
      Happy Holidays! Best wishes from fraternal KZ !!!

    To maintain authority, I would suggest holding a JOINT parade on June 24 and would invite ALL former Soviet republics to take part. Here we would see who is who ...

        This idea is not new. And that’s exactly what the country's leadership did. True, there is no need for a litmus test. And so everyone understands who will come and who will not. The point is in the details - it will look like an excuse for not participating.

    The Victory Parade has always been held "to commemorate the Victory of the Soviet people over fascist Germany" and has nothing to do with the end of the Second World War. Local (in scale) operation to save the "face" of the allied parasites who, in a different scenario, would have been tinkering with Japan for another 20 years, even if there were atomic bombs, doesn’t pull the Victory Parade under any circumstances! If this event happens in September, it will be a "parade of defeat"!

      Che seriously?
      Soviet losses amounted to 36,5 thousand people, of whom 12 thousand were killed and missing.

      That is, even if you do not take into account the result of the imminent end of the resistance of Japan, 12 thousand of our fighters, do you think it does not draw to the Parade?
      Here would be such clever couchs who not only sniffed gunpowder, but even had no idea which way to approach the machine, I would hand this same machine and send it to hot spots, so that they have at least some concept of reality. fool
