Those of you who don't get RT channel on Cable, I have satellite so I get it.

Russian victory parade will be live on rt website in 1 hour.

Funny little side note: yesterday they had rehearsal, and one tank stopped in the middle with a RED Flag waving, this was rehearsal for towing truck to come in. Once they showed they could hook up the chains and what not, truck went away and tank continued. Western propaganda turned that into tank having technical issues. LOL poor propagandists grabbing straws.

A far more serious side note ; I think this will be the first time Chinese military divisions will be shown as well.

And if you read western MSM, Russians and Chinese barely get along, who are these guys kidding. China alone saved Russian Currency during the crisis, and even scolded Putin for not willing to accept help immediately. Yeah they sure don't get along.

All of this consolidation of power is thanks to US foreign policy, or US empire building with their NATO patsies.

Watching it now on RT. Fantastic so far.


Hard to understand for me being a Brit when we lost one person to every 100 lost in the USSR what this means to the people of the former USSR, but this parade sort of helps

I think it is a bit weird - they are celebrating a victory in which neither the Soviet leadership or Command Staff cared a jot about the common soldier, which is why they lost so many. Most Soviet soldiers were illiterate peasants, recruited on a Monday and at the front on a Tuesday, often without even the basic weaponry needed to actually fight. Ten's of thousands remained unburied on the battlefields where they lay.

Riiiiight... Because you often "rehearse a tow truck" when practising for a parade.... Even the Russians mouthpeice RT is saying this:



All seemed to be going to plan until one of the mighty machines unexpectedly stopped right in front of the Lenin's mausoleum. Its engine was still running, but the tank would not move. An attempt to tow it away failed, before the T-14 eventually managed to restart and rumble off around 15 minutes later.

And they have since claimed it was "operator error", so your version of events is just a load of nonsense.

True. But it was a different world back then. For the Soviets it was literally desperate measures. They were attempting to create a new world from one of extreme poverty and feudalism. A new world to bring the Russian people into the modern world. This new world was attacked by the Nazis and manyother European people with a view to wiping the experiment in Socialism off the map. The Soviets were literally fighting for their lives against pure evil that had an intent to exterminate (not just Jews as portrayed over here but) all people in the USSR and settle it with people from greater Germany. What else could the Soviet leadership do when struck with an immence almost knock out punch in the first weeks of Barbarossa?

Watched the whole thing, sure doesn't look like US sanctions are working, being next to worlds biggest economy and all. For those who follow MSM, I am talking about China.

Yes they made it blatantly obvious that a war against Russia is a war with China and vs versa

What a load of bunk, unlike Germany Russia was not preparing or ready for world war, something they obviously learned from and changed.

No sanctions won't cripple Russia, the biggest country on Planet Earth with all its resourses, especially with it having China at its side with its great population and wealth. Combined Russia and China are some mean machine. A relationship increasing created by the USA and its policy of encircling Russia and China with client states and NATO

This goes to show you RT is clueless when it comes to some things because they are majority English speaking foreigners like Owen and Andrew Farmer.

If the tank was broken, how did it then continue on.

You think 2 guys with wrenches can go under a tank and fix it in few minutes, and send it on its way.

Lol clueless.

I'll be honest with you the Chinese division marching gave me a second thought about their army.

When I see Russian troops, I see patriots and for the lack of better word, real people.

But have you seen that Chinese division, they looked like freaking robots, and quite frankly they strike me as merciless and able to kill babies if order came from the top.

I don't like an army without heart is I guess what I am saying.

Know where you are coming from. The Chinese do look menacing, give them another ten years with tech build up and force projection into African client staes, elsewhere too, may be a real possibility.

And just a day before.. in Russia
Business Insider

Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed nearly 20 generals just a day before Moscow was set to host a Victory Day parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany, RIA Novosti reports.

The generals were dismissed by a presidential decree. Among those let go was the lieutenant general of police, Sergey Lavrov, as well as the head of media relations in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Andrei Pilipchuk.

The only propaganda here is from you.

Unless RT is Western propaganda


Russia’s military will be glad it was only a dress rehearsal, as its new state-of-the-art tank broke down in the Red Square. One of the T-14 Armata tanks ground to a halt, before finally rumbling away after the Victory Day parade rehearsal was over.

Do you know how many generals they have, about time they retire.

You should know this. Few years ago Putin told his generals, lose some F'in weight, you people can't run.

About 80 % lost weight and got in shape. The rest he retired on mass, this was few years ago.

Hey no one ever said Putin was an easy going happy go lucky guy
