Armenian soldiers march at Victory Parade in Moscow

The 75-member military group of Armenian soldiers marched Wednesday at the Victory Parade in Moscow.

Colonel of the Armed Forces of Armenia Ashot Hakobyan commanded the parade crew.

Armenian Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan is also present.

A victory parade is taking place in Moscow on Wednesday in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945).

The parade was scheduled to take place on May 9 but was postponed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over 13 thousand military personnel, 216 units of military equipment, 75 airplanes and helicopters are involved in the parade.


Nikol Pashinyan could not leave Armenia due to the COVID-19 situation in the country.

He has earlier sent a letter to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and noted: “Dear Mr. President, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to attend the events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. As you know, I had very gladly accepted your invitation to attend the solemn ceremonies, but, as it turned out later, the coronavirus situation does not allow me to take the trip.”
