Back to the topic of 9 May Victory Day. Not so much Red Square Moscow this year but rather Mariupol?
From AFP ^ | May 4, 2022 | Joshua Askew the time from Freeper.
"Russia is planning a military parade in the embattled city of Mariupol, Ukraine's intelligence service said on Wednesday. The parade is set to be held in the south-eastern Ukrainian city on 9 May to coincide with Moscow's Victory Day Parade, which celebrates its victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War. Mariupol 'will become the center of celebrations', said the Ukrainian Military Intelligence (GUR) in a statement published on Telegram. (snip) Audiences in Russia will also be shown footage of Mariupol rejoicing at having Russian troops in their city"
Mariupol the capture of the city after a LONG and DIFFICULT battle [not still 100 % concluded] a subject for rejoicing in Russia.
Captured Ukrainian troops paraded through the streets. Evidence of Azov battalion neo-Nazi atrocity made apparent and shown to the whole world. Grateful and exuberant citizens of Mariupol beholden to the Russian troops ecstatic in their jubilation. I can see it all now.
NOT QUITE THE LAVISH CEREMONY THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE OF RED SQUARE BUT IT WILL DO?
