79 years ago, the Victory Parade took place on Red Square – the first procession of participants of the Great Patriotic War and students of military academies.

The parade was commanded by Konstantin Rokossovsky, and was hosted by Marshal Georgy Zhukov:
Sunday, June 24, 1945, 9 am, it’s raining heavily (but mostly women under the umbrellas), it’s cool, the square is filled with people

The main feature of the event was that the soldiers threw 200 banners of the defeated divisions of Nazi Germany at the foot of the mausoleum – as a symbol of the final victory of the USSR in World War II.
