…Victory Day 2010…День Победы 2010…
09.05.2010 Nizhny Novgorod
It was the biggest event of the year after New Year Celebration in Russia! On this very meaningful day, the Red Army (Soviet Union) claimed their victory in World War 2 over Germany on 09.05.1945!
And today, 09.05.2010! They’ve celebrated their 65th Anniversary of Victory in the war… The day that everyone should proud of, the day when the surrender document was signed late in the evening on 8th May (9th May Moscow time in 1945).
I was in the parade today! For the 1st time in 6th years of studying life in Russia… hehe! But it was a very valuable experience …..(Honestly speaking I haven’t been to our National parade yet..;P)
We didn’t went to Moscow for the parade, (of course I think Moscow one was 10x more grand than ours), we just stay in Nizhny Novgorod for it, so, these pictures were captured while I was along the parade and wanted to share with all of you…
Of course after the incident of Moscow Metro bombing, the security around the area was tighten up! From what we can see here, the police were patrolling around and the body scanners were every where to make sure everyone who entered the parade are safe!
And here comes the pictures that I managed to capture during the parade, I was toooooo far away from the good angle to take those pictures because it was too crowed! What I could was simply snapped from far… hehe…;)
And here are some memorable moment to share…
65 years have passed and they still in love with each others!
Pay respect to all those who sacrificed during the War… In front of the eternal flame!
