Russia’s top brass has invited military units of 19 foreign armies to take part in the WWII Victory Parade on Moscow’s Red Square on June 24, Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu said at the ministry’s conference call on Tuesday.


"The parade teams of 19 foreign states have been invited," Shoigu said.

The Victory Parade on Moscow’s Red Square to mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in the 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War will involve "about 14,000 personnel, including over 800 cadets of pre-University educational institutions and the Young Army movement," the defense chief said.

The parade will feature "225 items of armament, military and special hardware and 75 aircraft. The spectators will be able to see over 20 latest military models, including Su-57 and MiG-31K aircraft," the defense chief said.

Overall, the military parades in nine hero cities and 19 cities across Russia where the military districts, fleets and armies are headquartered, are expected to involve 64,000 personnel, 1,850 weapon systems and 511 aircraft, the defense minister said.
