100 Years Of Soviet and Russian Military Parades 1917-2017 Volume 3

THE RUSSIAN ARMY ON PARADE 1992-2017

CONCLUDING THE SERIES

This third and final volume describes the post-Soviet Russian military parades held in Moscow
from 1992 to present day, completing a century of full-scale mechanised military parades
on Red Square, at a time when demonstrating the defensive capability of the nation was, as
in 1918, and in 1941, again deemed a strategic requirement in an uncertain world.

DID YOU KNOW?

In the 1990s, there was only a single full-scale military parade in Moscow, commemorating the
50th Anniversary of Victory in Europe. Tanks would however be operationally deployed on the
streets of Moscow in 1993 during the Russian “Constitutional Crisis”.

The dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991 brought the seven-decade long tradition of
7th November Red Square military parades to an abrupt halt. In the post-Cold War era, displays of
military might were for a time deemed superfluous in the modern Russian Federation.

RED SQUARE RETURN

In 2008, full-scale military parades involving mechanised military equipment - “tekhnika” - would
return to Red Square, now held as Victory Day parades on 9th May annually. The Victory parades
were from 2011 joined by a return of historic 7th November parades, now commemorating the
defiant military parade of 7th November 1941 rather than the Russian Revolution of 1917.

The recently introduced full-scale 9th May Red Square Victory parades once again provide the
Russian public and foreign observers an annual opportunity to view the Russian military machine
on display. For foreign observers, military or civilian, an understanding of the nation behind the
military personnel and equipment on display has never been more important than it is today.

WAIT, THERE IS MORE...

On 24th June 2020, the Russian Federation commemorated the 75th Anniversary of Victory
in Europe in the “Great Patriotic War”. Over its 112 pages, this book will guide you
through the equipment displayed during the parade, with many stunning new vehicles.

75th_special_stand

The major 75 Anniversary Victory Parade was as with all previous parades a commemoration of the
nearly 27 million Soviet souls lost in protecting the country in the 1941-45 war, combined with a
demonstration of the latest Russian military might for the benefit of domestic and foreign audiences.
