Concluding The Series...
This third and final volume describes the post-Soviet Russian military parades held in Moscow from 1992 to present day, completing a century of full-scale mechanised military parades on Red Square, at a time when demonstrating the defensive capability of the nation was, as in 1918, and in 1941, again deemed a strategic requirement in an uncertain world.
Did You Know?
In the 1990s, there was only a single full-scale military parade in Moscow, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Victory in Europe. Tanks would however be operationally deployed on the streets of Moscow in 1993 during the Russian “Constitutional Crisis”.
The dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991 brought the seven-decade long tradition of 7th November Red Square military parades to an abrupt halt. In the post-Cold War era, displays of military might were for a time deemed superfluous in the modern Russian Federation.
Red Square Return
In 2008, full-scale military parades involving mechanised military equipment - “tekhnika” - would return to Red Square, now held as Victory Day parades on 9th May annually. The Victory parades were from 2011 joined by a return of historic 7th November parades, now commemorating the defiant military parade of 7th November 1941 rather than the Russian Revolution of 1917 
The recently introduced full-scale 9th May Red Square Victory parades once again provide the Russian public and foreign observers an annual opportunity to view the Russian military machine on display. For foreign observers, military or civilian, an understanding of the nation behind the military personnel and equipment on display has never been more important than it is today.

Wait, There Is More - ...
On 24th June 2020, the Russian Federation commemorated the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe in the “Great Patriotic War”.
