"Demonstration of power or the struggle for Putin's rating": world press about the parade on June 24

102

In less than a week, on June 24, a parade will be held in Moscow in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. Foreign media are already giving their assessments of the upcoming event. As expected, these estimates are contradictory and very different from each other.


China's information resources generally respond positively to the upcoming parade. According to Chinese authors, the very fact of holding a ceremony in Moscow shortly after the coronavirus pandemic "testifies to the fearlessness of Russia and can only cause respect."

The Chinese do not dispute the importance of holding the parade. So, Xinhua writes that for Russia, the parade is one of the most important events. The author of the article, Liu Weizhi, emphasizes that thanks to the parade, Russia is able to emphasize its status as a great power and demonstrate the power of its weapons.

The Chinese military will also take part in the parade in Moscow. Naturally, the PRC media could not ignore this topic.

The participation of Chinese troops in the parade on Red Square will serve as evidence of the strengthening of Russian-Chinese cooperation, as well as a signal to the international community that Moscow and Beijing together are able to effectively resist the barbaric provocations of the United States,

- says an article in the Chinese edition of Sohu.

The parade was also praised by the Indian media. Thus, The Times of India noted the importance of cooperation with Russia, including in the military sphere, and focused on the participation in the upcoming parade of 75-80 Indian troops. Three platoons will represent the ground forces, the Air Force and the Indian Navy.

Another Indian resource, DNA India, cited a statement from the Indian Ministry of Defense:

Participation in the parade will be a sign of respect and solidarity with the people of Russia at a time when he remembers and honors his heroes of World War II.



In European and American media, we see opposite estimates. The position of American and European publications comes down to criticizing the parade for political reasons: in the West they believe that it is being held by the Russian leadership to raise the rating of Vladimir Putin. But since accusations of political bias alone are not enough, the West is actively using the coronavirus theme: the parade supposedly threatens the epidemiological safety of the Russian state.

The New York Times writes that the parade on June 24 is necessary for the Russian authorities to hold an important vote on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

The author of the Bulgarian edition of Facts discusses about the same thing. In his opinion, Vladimir Putin “needs a holiday at all costs,” respectively, and the parade is held only to reinforce the rating of the Russian president, which has been reduced to a minimum, according to the publication.

The National Interest in its publication focuses on the risk of coronavirus infection due to unwillingness to postpone a military parade in Moscow. At the same time, the publication recalls the outbreaks of coronavirus in a number of military units and military educational institutions.

Of course, the Polish media could not ignore the parade. So, the publication Defense 24 stopped at the same accusation of Putin in a special parade to provide support for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

As for the attitude of the radical Polish audience towards Russia, they are clearly illustrated by the comment under the article:

They will invade Georgia and Ukraine, arrange new parades. They have sausage, vodka and onions. And that’s enough for them.

      What spirit, what kind of Russia?
      What nonsense ?!
      This is a mockery of the people and the memory of the dead, not a parade.
      Openly spit in the face of the people.
      Again, they will cover everything with plywood, distort even the red star, I am already silent about the flags.

        Very strange of you Jews.

        I hope there will be no resentment if I answer.
        From 1950 to 1991, Israel was an enemy of the USSR. And the USSR supported the Arab states both with arms and financially during the war. About 4000 people died in these wars. They left their parents, wives, children and the memory of this remained with the people for a long time.
        After 1991, when diplomatic relations were concluded and many participants of the Great Patriotic War and their families came from the USSR and Russia, on May 9 they began to put on orders and gathered to celebrate, organized a Council of Veterans and turned to the government with a proposal that May 9 would be Victory Day . And this proposal was accepted. This was accepted by all the people.
        Here so in brief.

    And with such thoughts, you do not care how long to hold the parades ?? You write that we have nothing to do with this? It’s strange. So my father is not my father, but it is not known who and I do not have family ties with him? And my daughter is not the granddaughter of a veteran and has no right to be proud of what her grandfather did? But when we act on the principle declared by you, we will become the very “Ivans who do not remember kinship”, the very mankurts. And if you think that exploitation is underway, I would advise you to remove Soviet epaulets from your avatar. Especially since. You have nothing to do with them, then what are you exploiting ???

    And where does the July 3 ???? And all day there was a festive mood, and films, and concerts for veterans, including and this year. Or was it necessary to "frostbite the ears of grandmother" and at whatever the cost to hold a parade on May 9th? For me, this day was always holy. Without whether there is a parade or not. This is the day of my father, a war veteran.
    And in Soviet times there was only THREE Victory parade - in1945 (and it was June 24), in 1965, in 1985. In post-Soviet times, parades became daily since 1996. If for a person only the Parade is the criterion of Victory Day, then it means that everything is not in order with the perception of reality. The main thing is not whether someone will march along the square, but what people have in their hearts ...

    The parade is good, but probably it should not be held at the cost of the threat of massive COVID infection among the participants in the parade. By the way, at the time of the parade, a high level of COVID infection remains, many regions refused to hold parades, and a disinfection tunnel was installed the other day in President Putin’s residence.
    And under these conditions, President Putin is pushing the parade! This is not a tribute to the ancestors who won the great war. This is the use of the great holiday for political purposes, and it’s dangerous at the moment!

    if during the parade the mausoleum of Lenin is closed again with shields, then this is debatable, but permissible. And if
    during the parade there will be no portraits of Stalin, Zhukov, Rokossovsky, Konev and other great leaders and
    commanders who led the country and the army that defeated fascism in World War II, then such a demarche is no longer permissible. In past parades there were even T-34 tanks, there were Katyushas, ​​there were soldiers with three-rulers and in the form of soldiers of the Great Patriotic War. There were flags of fronts and formations, but there were no portraits of those who led the country and the Army that achieved the Great Victory, there were no portraits of those Great Leaders and commanders. It's time to correct this injustice and mistake.
    ps
    My indifference to whether the Lenin Mausoleum is hidden comes from two positions.
    First one.
    The current government is like a slightly pregnant woman. If the Lenin Mausoleum is acceptable to Russia and the Russian people every day in trouble and joy and does not hide it, but on the contrary shows and advertises in booklets
    around the world, as one of the main elements of the ensemble of Red Square, so what the hell, the Lenin Mausoleum must be covered with shields during the parade.
    The second one.
    Stalin to the Red Empire of the USSR bit by bit assembled by Lenin the dismembered and torn Romanov Empire. What did Lenin’s words mean, that ... Russia is a prison of peoples .... Or that it meant at least the affairs of Lenin, who crossed out the Baltic states from Russia. And in Ukraine, almost every farm created a republic separate from the rest of Russia. And if Stalin would not have gathered all this into the Red Empire in the 1940 model, then Hitler alone would not have been possible to defeat.
    So Stalin must be in portraits at the Victory Parade, and the Lenin Mausoleum has nothing
    to hide during the Parade, if you expose this Mausoleum to everyone every day ...
