MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. A ceremonial march celebrating the 75th anniversary of the historic military parade held in Moscow on November 7, 1941 began on Red Square on Monday with the chime of bells and "The Sacred War" song.
More than 5,000 people are marching along Moscow’s Red square.
The spectators will see the ceremony re-enacting the war events and the military equipment of the Great Patriotic War era.
The servicemen carry flags of units that defended the Russian capital 75 years ago. Later the soldiers wearing uniforms of the 1940s will march. The military hardware will parade across Red Square and stay there until 5 p.m.
The ceremony will be attended by WWII veterans, including those who took part in the legendary parade in 1941, the 1945 Victory Parade, representatives of veterans’ and youth organizations and municipal authorities. The march marking the parade’s anniversary is held in Moscow for the 14th time.
The legendary parade in 1941 lasted for around an hour and was attended by 28,500 soldiers and militia fighters. Many of them went to the frontline to defend Moscow from the advancing Nazis straight from Red Square.
