Weaponry on Tverskaya street

Weaponry on Tverskaya street

On May 5th, during the general repetition of the military parade dedicated to 63th Anniversary of our Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), tracks and tanks filled whole Tverskaya street on the way to the Red Square. It was the last repetition of military parade which will be on the Red Square on May 9th (Victory day) 2008.

I came to the area nearby the Moscow Kremlin very early this morning in a hope to find a good spot to take some interesting pictures and I was waiting more than 2 hours to see this event. All streets surrounding the Moscow Kremlin were cordoned by police, army and special services. The best place I decided to choose was beginning of Tverskaya street right near a new Ritz Carlton hotel (opened in August 2007) where it was a great overview of moving all weaponry down a hill. Before they started to move to the Red Square they was standing on the hill more than 1 hour and special services with dogs checked every tank or fighting vehicle probably for explosive materials (it was my guess).

With BEST Regards,
