    As our governement is in the "dčche" right now, we only have coverage of the sponsorship scandal going on on TV, so we didn't have the coverage of the parade, because our PM wasn't there (he went to Holland instead). I caught some in the news though and was pleased to hear the song "slavyansk" or something like that. A cool and joyful march. Red Square is big!

    I did see the march past of the Army formations in th present day uniform (I am assuming they were from the Tamaskaya Guards DIvision).

    I also saw the march past of a large formation (a Company?) of soldiers caring what looked like the Division Banners (I think I saw the 1st Guards Rifle!)

    Lastly I saw the escort of the Victory Banner across Red Square. For those that do not know, it was a re-production of the Banner the 150th Rifle Division carried to the top of the Reichstag.

    The next issue of the Military-HIstory journals will probably carry coverage of it.

    It was a Great Parade, it was approximately for a one a a half hours. It was very nice, the music also was excellent.

    Russian TV said that it was broadcasted in many countries of the World so it is strange that US TV didn't broadcasted it. US spectators lost very nice show.

    You didn't see the most interesting historical part.

    Firstly the soldiers dressed the uniform of 1945 went on the Red Square.

    Firstly the soldiers with real combat banners went.

    Then an infantry company with Mosin rifles with attached bayonets went. They carried rifles in a combat position, I liked it very much.

    Then tankmen, sailors, airmen went.

    Then a sapper company went. Each soldier carried a mine-detector and leaded a sheep dog. (May be, those dogs showed dogs-tank destroyers which eliminated enemy tanks)

    Then a Cossack cavalry squadron went on horses.

    The commanding officers went with drawed sabres.

    Then 130 trucks with real veterans (they represented the 10 Fronts of the war, from the north to south, each group of trucks had the real banner of the front on the leading truck, the real vetrans of that front were in the trucks) went on a square and all the vistors stood up and greeted the veterans.

    Then modern troops went - firstly military academies, then soldiers and seamen, and in the end cadet schools. It was also very nice.

    "Вставай" means "stand up". But in the song it means "arise".

    Here there is the translation of the song (I don't remember exact page).

    svyachtchennaya voďna

    This is the most solemn, most intense, most motivating song there is. I had to learn it for my ruskiď yazyk course (i had the choice between a usual oral presentation and a song) and when I sang in front of everybody, they all wanted to join me and kick some punk a**es.
    I can imagine the effect the song had for the red army soldiers.. even today.

    just a question, what does вставай means?

    Right now the Russian TV shows holiday’s concert. Best modern singers sing old songs about the war. It is the same like modern US singers (Madonna, Michael Jackson and so on) singed American songs of WWII-time and modern US orchestra played the music of Glenn Miller.

    Nikolay Baskov, a famous Russian opera singer, singed the song “Let’s bow before those great years” a few minutes ago. He began to sing the song and all the public in the hall… suddenly stood up and stayed standing while Baskov singed the song…

    “Поклонимся великим тем годам”

    “Let’s bow before those great years”

    Не забывай те грозные года
    Когда кипела волжская вода
    Земля тонула в ярости огня
    И не было ни ночи и ни дня

    Do not forget those stern years
    When the Volga’s water boiled and
    The ground was covered by the fury of fire
    And there was no difference between night and day

    Сражались мы у волжских берегов
    На Волгу шли дивизии врагов
    Но выстоял великий наш солдат
    Но выстоял бессмертный Сталинград

    We fought nearly the bank of the Volga
    Many divisions of enemies went to the Volga
    But our great soldier had held out,
    But immortal Stalingrad had held out!

    Поклонимся великим тем годам
    Тем славным командирам и бойцам
    И маршалам страны и рядовым
    Поклонимся и мертвым и живым
    Всем тем которых забывать нельзя
    Поклонимся поклонимся друзья
    Всем миром всем народом всей землей
    Поклонимся за тот великий бой

    Let’s bow before those great years,
    Let’s bow before those glorious soldiers and commanders,
    Before marshals and before privates,
    Let’s bow before dead and alive,
    Let’s bow, friends, before those
    Whom we have no to forget
    Let’s bow with all our people
    Let’s bow for that great battle

    Замкнули мы вокруг врагов кольцо
    Мы полыхнули гневом им в лицо
    Солдат российский саван из снегов
    Стелил стелил для вражеских полков

    We had enclosed the circle over the enemies
    We blazed by our anger to their faces
    A Russian soldiers were making snow white cerement
    To many regiments of enemies.

    Окончен тот великий смертный бой
    Синеет мирно небо над тобой
    Над вечной нашей матушкой-рекой
    Над славною солдатской головой

    That great mortal battle had finished,
    And sky is blue over you,
    Mother-river, which is our forever,
    And over glorious soldier’s head.


    Поклонимся великим тем годам
    Тем славным командирам и бойцам
    И маршалам страны и рядовым
    Поклонимся и мертвым и живым
    Всем тем которых забывать нельзя
    Поклонимся поклонимся друзья
    Всем миром всем народом всей землей
    Поклонимся за тот великий бой

    Let’s bow before those great years,
    Let’s bow before those glorious soldiers and commanders,
    Before marshals and before privates,
    Let’s bow before dead and alive,
    Let’s bow, friends, before those
    Whom we have no to forget
    Let’s bow with all our people
    Let’s bow for that great battle

    You can try to capture Russian TV by means of sattelite antenna (TV?).

    I know exactly that the Russian emigrants in Canada see there Russian TV with sattelite antenna (TV?), you are able to do it also.

    Russian TV does show the Parade of May, 9th which is an every year event.

    Also Russian TV will show a lot of the best Soviet military movies in 7-10th of May, some of those movies are in my list of the best Soviet military movies.

    If you want I can say what military movioes will be shown in Omsk in the holiday.

    Six companies and a cavalry squadron will take part in the first part of the parade. They will represent all types of the troops of WWII time. All of them will be dressed in uniform of 1943. Then 2600 veterans (in civil clothes) will be driven in 130 trucks which were specially made to be looked like ZIS-5.

    In the second part of the parade 18 battalions of modern troops will take part, their amount is more 7,000 men. In the end modern combat planes will fly over Red Square.

    The common time of the parade will be 70 minutes.
