MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. The Kremlin is content with the Victory Parade rehearsal that took place on May 7, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday.
"They assess the rehearsal with all its elements as successful," Peskov said, answering a TASS question.
According to Thursday reports, an equipment evacuation element was drilled with Russia’s new Armata tank.
The dress rehearsal of the Victory Parade in Moscow’s Red Square near the Kremlin due on May 9 on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the allied victory over Nazi Germany featured an impressive column of Russia’s newest armoured equipment. The new-generation main battle tank based on the Armata platform surely took center-stage. For the first time ever it appeared in front of the general public in broad daylight to be caught on camera by a dozen professional photographers, including foreign ones. Also, media people had an excellent chance to quench their curiosity about the new heavy infantry fighting vehicle built on the very same Armata chassis, the MICV Kurganets-25, the self-propelled 152-mm artillery piece Koalitsiya-SV, wheeled APC Boomerang and the self-propelled anti-tank rocket system Kornet-D1.
