KHMEIMIM (Syria), May 9. /TASS/. A military parade devoted to the 71st anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 was held at Russia’s Khmeimim airbase in Syria on Monday.
At the start of the parade, a banner group brought the state flag of Russia and the Victory Banner - a symbol of the Soviet people’s victory in the Great Patriotic War - onto the airfield.
After a welcoming speech by Commander of the Russian Air Task Force in Syria Colonel-General Alexander Dvornikov reviewing the parade, the parade participants performed the Russian anthem.
The parade units of Russian and Syrian servicemen marching across the airfield were followed by military hardware that included Tigr (Tiger) armored vehicles, new BTR-82M armored personnel carriers, R-166 communications vehicles, Ural-4320 trucks with D-30 howitzers and Pantsyr-S antiaircraft missile/gun systems.
Also, Russia’s most advanced S-400 Triumf antiaircraft missile system drove across the airfield.
