    The whole of Russia celebrated the 61st anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War which lasted for 1,418 days from 1941 till 1945. Moscow, the center of all V-Day festivities in Russia, started celebrating the holiday from the traditional grand Victory Day Parade on the Red Square. Over 5,700 servicemen took part in the parade.

    Very good. The honour guard is kinda cool, in a solemn, respectful way of course. ;)
    Yeltsin still looks like a buffoon.

    Yeah he does a bit. The honour guard looks good though, would of been a spectacle to see, nothing on the Victory Parade of 1945 though.

    Nice pictures up there.
    And yes, I agree with you Les, he's a damn croocked snake... Maybe he's not bored at all but his facial experssion is standard.

    Ive been to the Moscow and visited the "Great Patriotic War Museum".

    If there was one thing that museum conveyed was the vast carnage of war that was inflicted on Russia and the immense casualties they suffered.

    There was one section of the museum that i call "the room of the dead". It had at least two dozen "huge" books on display that listed every single one of their war dead. I couldnt read cyrillic, but some names had a few sentences, some had a paragraph or more.

    I just had to shake my head in the wonderment of it all.

    Good, good, pics 8)

    The Russians suffered outrageously in the war, before the war, and after it. The amount of people that died in Stalin's time (1924-53) was something like 50 million excluding the people that actually died in the war.... He directly, or indirectly ended up as the worst killer in History, worse even than Hitler...
