Photographer's Note

Today is almost impossible to meet an officer of high rank as this Colonel General.
He has 88 years and has participated in all most famous air battles during the Second World War.

To highlight all its orders and medals, I just decided to exhibit his chest. In the workshop you can see the General completely.

I believe that I was very lucky to have been close to Red Square throughout this morning and share with friends of TE the more important moments in my opinion.

Victory Day marks the final surrender by Nazi Germany to the U.S.S.R. in WWII, often referred to as the Great Patriotic War in Russia and other states in the former Soviet Union.

The first Victory Parade was held on Red Square on June 24, 1945 on the order of the then-Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Joseph Stalin.

Under a new law recently signed by President Medvedev, Victory Day parades involving military hardware are held this year for the first time in 23 Russian cities, rather in Moscow alone.
