Putin on Victory Day: Russian Military to be Strengthened

Thursday, 09 May 2019 05:38 AM EDT

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has told the annual military Victory Day parade in Red Square that the country will continue to strengthen its armed forces.

The parade on Friday marked the 74th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. It included about 13,000 servicemen and 130 pieces of military equipment, ranging from a T-34 tank -- renowned for its effectiveness in World War II -- to lumbering Yars ICBM launch units.

Putin said in his speech that "we have done and will do everything necessary to ensure the high combat capability of our armed forces."

He added: "At the same time, Russia is open for cooperation with all who are ready to resist terrorism, neo-Nazism and extremism."

Dozens of other cities also held parades for Russia's most significant secular holiday.
