About 750 personnel of the Russian military contingent in Syria and the Syrian government troops and around 20 items of military hardware took part in the parade at the Hmeymim airbase to mark the 74th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

The foot columns included officers of the contingent’s command and the tactical group, servicemen of the anti-aircraft missile regiment, the special-purpose medical group, the consolidated parade unit of female service members and units of the Russian military police and Syrian personnel.

The mechanized column comprised about 20 pieces of modern Russian weapon systems, including Taifun and Tigr armored vehicles, BTR-82AM armored personnel carriers and other military hardware.

The static parking area featured Su-35, Su-34, Su-24, Su-25 and A-50 aircraft, Mi-8 and Mi-35 helicopters.

The Immortal Regiment action is being held in six Syrian cities to commemorate WWII heroes.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
