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,

We learned about Arthurs services in an unfortunate way. After reading a few stories about how Arthur was involved with a young boy who was sent back to Russia from America alone on a plane we decided to use his services while we were in Moscow. My young son and I are sponsors of SOS Children’s Village and during or down time from visiting the SOS Children’s Village in Tomilino we decided to book Arthur services to take my mother for a tour of Moscow. Little did Arthur know we had some sort of connection, because my son and I just happen to be the sponsor to the same child. Arthur knew we were visiting the children’s village but I would always use the child’s birth name because he is no long recognized by his former name and I believe Arthur never connected. I showed Arthur a picture of my son and the boy and referred to the boy by his real name and then informed Arthur who this child was by his former adopted name. Arthur seemed very pleased and happy to see the boys smiling face and to hear that he is doing just fine and wonderful. The service he provided my family was wonderful and the way he treated my 8 year old son was just fantastic! It was a pleasure and honor to meet this man. I will highly recommend my new friends service to anyone traveling to Moscow for wonderful experience!
